Image Preview
Ref Number
S-A97
Item Date
1884


Fort Pitt was one of several Hudson's Bay Company posts located along the river systems in Saskatchewan.


"Angus McKay, in charge of Fort Pitt in 1884, holds up a beaver skin. On his right is the Cree Chief, Big Bear. Several other Hudson's Bay Company employees and members of Big Bear's band are also present. Prior to 1870 the fur traders and the Aboriginal Peoples had co-existed in a relationship of mutual dependence. Few Europeans lived on the plains and the Aboriginal Peoples lived much as they always had."
