Kazan Falls, 1974

WCA and Wilderness & Canoe Symposium friend David Pelly has sent a note with half a dozen old photos taken by George Luste at Kazan Falls in 1974. On this trip, George Luste, Michael Good, John Martin and John Blackborow built the cairn at Kazan Falls. David came upon those photos while he was sorting through his treasure chest of old photos looking to contribute material to the Nunavut Archives and doing research for his latest book The Ancestors Are Happy: True Tales of the Arctic. Having lived, travelled, and learned in Nunavut for over forty years, David draws on his experiences and encounters with Inuit elders to uniquely illuminate the land as well as many of the northern characters that gently walked on it.
