Part of Metis Nation of the Northwest Territories fonds

This item is the second part of a two-part interview of Ernest (Ernie) Joseph Camsell on the Norweta (boat on the Mackenzie River), recorded in July 1996 by an unidentified female interviewer. The interview is in English. The original source item is side B of a 60 minute audio cassette. The interview also includes item CN-53A. The interview focuses on gathering biographical details about Ernie. Ernie speaks about fishing, the reasons why Fort Rae moved to its current location, and the opening up of Edzo (Behchoko). Ernie also relates a story about caribou and reminisces about some old people he knows of or used to know. Ernie speaks a little about being a person of mixed heritage. When he was at school he was offered the opportunity to become a priest, which he declined. Ernie tells more about his job at Con Mine and his work as a government game warden and welfare officer. He quit his job in December 1986 and started receiving his pension the following March, when he turned 65. Ernie talks about struggles with alcohol and how he had quit drinking and smoking a few years before. He reminisces about some of his school friends and his siblings. The recording ends abruptly as the Norweta passes Little Chicago.

This recording includes sides A and B of the tape.
