Between 1978 and 1988, photographer George Mully travelled across Canada to capture images of people, locations and events. Were you there, or do you remember meeting him?
Unfortunately, we have very little information about these photographs. Please help us by participating in our new Co-Lab challenge!
Like Facebook, our Co-Lab tool allows you to tag images. You can identify people, locations and even objects! You can also add additional information that is useful, noteworthy or interesting in the Description field. By doing so, you allow archival information to be found easily.
Tagging the images with names, locations and dates will help family members, communities and Canadians ensure that these people and places are remembered.
This collection contains a series of 363 photographs taken between 1978 and 1988. They depict First Nations people and Inuit from across Canada, as well as Diné (Navajo) and Inde (Apache) from the United States. Mully's images document how Indigenous peoples lived and worked. Most of the photographs show people going about their daily lives, often while performing an activity. Sometimes it is a traditional activity, such as hunting and gathering, creating art, and making crafts, or a contemporary activity such as working in a modern industry. Occasionally, Mully captures crossovers between traditional and contemporary life.
