A Model T truck, one of the first vehicles to enter the Northwest Territories in the 1920s. It was owned initially by Dr. Clermont Bourget, the Indian Agent and medical doctor stationed at Fort Resolution from 1923 to 1933. The truck was then used by trader George Pinsky who operated a general store in Fort Resolution for many years. When Pinsky donated the truck to the museum in 1963 it was still in working condition.
A moose call made from a juvenile bull moose scapula (shoulder bone). A hunter uses it by scraping it up along a tree during the rut season to create an attractive sound. The object has been carved to easily fit a hunter’s hand.
A bag made of loon skin with cotton fabric lining. The handle is woven porcupine quills backed with caribou hide. The bag was donated by George Pinsky, a store owner and fur trader in Fort Resolution. In 1962, Mr. Pinsky said the bag was ''made many years ago''.
The Department of Education, Culture and Employment is happy to note that Phase 1 of the Emerging Wisely plan includes being able to open museums and galleries. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre is currently developing a plan for reopening that will ensure the health and safety of staff and patrons, and will not be opening until this plan is in place and approved by the Office of the Chief Health Officer. We will provide updates as more information becomes available.
