Photograph of two Indigenous Canadians facing the viewer and surrounded by tarpaulins and rush matting acting as temporary shelters. The man on the left stands, holding a long, narrow basket over his left arm. On the left and hanging from a pole, are fish hung to dry.
Eulachon fish were often known as 'candle fish' due to their large amount of body fat that they could be dried and burned as a candle
