Mistissini - Day 2

The day started cloudy and cold. Later we had a bit of snow. It was another day of discovery as we met the students and learned some cultural facts. Mistissini started off as a summer gathering place as the various families returned after a winter of hunting.

Ian and I also discovered we are a very bad judge of age. There is a young man in one of the classes who we thought to be 18. He is 13. He is a very large young man who is an outstanding hockey player. There was another young lady we thought to be 17. She too turned out to be 13. Ian want's to know what they feed teh children here. Then there was another young lady who we thought was 16 who turned out to be 20 years old.

Check out the photos on my Facebook.
