It was winter and people started out to their traditional traplines away from the Fort Albany river. Two families decided to camp along what is now known as Ghost river. This is long before contact, when Cree people traveled freely to any destination as far as they could go. This river was near Fort Albany and Attawapiskat by kilometres both sides. People either used dogsleds at that time. These two families trapped small game such as beavers and martens, snared rabbits and they enjoyed the landscapes by the riverside.
