Moses (Amik) Beaver
Summer Beaver

Moses (Amik) Beaver is a Canadian Aboriginal Artist, from the fly-in reserve of Summer Beaver, Ontario (Nibinamik). He is self-taught, his use of colour revealing. He works with acrylic on canvas, Indian ink on paper and watercolour. While Moses’ work reflects the black lines of traditional Woodlands art, he embraces his own unique style of embedded images of spirits, human faces and animal forms, transcending physical boundaries to the outer dimensions of the spiritual realm. In this his work reflects symbolism, realism and abstract imagery.

 As stories for the First Nations People have always been a major tool of cultural transmission holding the history, values, beliefs and spirituality of the people, Moses hopes his work will resonate and awaken an awareness that is at once exciting and empowering, a way for all people to understand an Aboriginal world view.  Within this context, story telling through colour and imagery, he contributes to cultural revitalization, an awakening that continues to gather strength among the people to express and share the experience of being in and with the world, not masters of it.  

 Moses works with the youth both within the educational system and in community projects.  This relationship with youths both inspires and motivates him and is a constant source of personal growth.

Wild on the Superior Frontier

WILD ON THE SUPERIOR FRONTIER

With the opening of the Michigan State Canal in 1855, thousands of westernized people migrated into the grand Lake Superior watershed.  They came from the eastern States, Lower Canada and Europe, all of them seeking new lives and opportunities in mid America.  In the early days access into the cold aqueous heart of the North American Continent was only by boat.  Vessels would test themselves on a great sea that challenged Captains and passengers with furious outbursts of deadly weather.  Onward individuals and families of settlers came carrying with them their personal histories and cultural backgrounds.  They brought their love stories, their religious faiths, their personal skills and industriousness, their foibles and their hopes for rewarding lives.  Their endeavors were many.  Prospectors searching for silver, copper, gold and iron; lumbermen hunting for timber; coastal sailors plying between the fledgling ports at Marquette, Superior/Duluth, Fort William and prince Arthurs Landing; madams involved in the sex trade and women looking for equality with their male counterparts.  Among the many were newspaper editors promoting their towns, writing their stories with little regard for personal privacy of citizens should they transgress the morals and decorum of the times.  This is a book for those who desire a large picture of the past in Superior Country.  It contains stories with humor, deceit, awry cases of justice, rough voyages on the Big Lake, amazing finds of mineral wealth, and loving and strained relationships between men and women on the 19th Century frontier.

‘MAD’ DONALD MACKAY

    On any fine day you can see the old brown tombstone on the graveyard knoll at the Kenzieville Cemetery in Pictou County, Nova Scotia. Here,  lie the long forgotten remains of ‘Mad’ Donald MacKay the notorious  18thcentury fur trader. His one hundred and eighty year old grave  marker of faded  sandstone so coated with tenacious lichen and years of winter weathering that his name is only partly legible. On the bottom of the quarried stone, barely readable, is an inscription, “Behold all ye that do pass by, remember that you all must die.” With the MacKay’s of Barneys River attending he was set there in an eternity box on a brilliant sunny June day in 1833. Some of his present ancestors say Donald was an angry man all his life. ‘Mad’ Donald, the fur trader and explorer lived eighty summers. Many would say that a man who had crossed the North Atlantic Ocean on sailing schooners nine times between 1773 and 1820 was just plain lucky. The number of times Donald MacKay faced death in the fur trade country in disputes with Indians and competing traders from the North West Company was allayed only by the ferocity of his passionate Highland temper. He would face every challenge, once threatening to fire his pistol into barrels of gunpowder to hold threatening Native trappers at bay. Starting his fur trade career with Gregory McLeod and Company in 1779, he would later become an independent trader then, labour for the North West Company before joining the Honourable Hudson Bay Company. ‘Mad’ Donald would spend 18 years exploring and trading in the American and British northwest. His travels with his country wife, the young Metis woman, Hannah Sutherland saw Donald range from the Mandan Country on the Missouri, west to Pine Island on the Saskatchewan River and north to the HBC coastal ports on Hudson Bay. Dòmhnall MacAoidh, as known to his Gaelic tongued peers, was a rugged tough man. He was a sturdy  Gael . He once walked in the freeze of a snow-bound winter from Halifax to Montreal in 1788-89. It took 69 exhausting days on snowshoes to accomplish the task. In the annals’ of Hudson Bay Company fur traders, Highlander ‘Mad’ Mackay was aggressive, feared and despised by many in his own Honourable Company as well as voyageurs from Quebec. Mackay, a former soldier was ever ready with his sword and pistols to challenge danger or any affront to his Scottish sensibilities.


    In 1830, an elderly Donald MacKay calls his family and relatives together. He will tell his life story. His grandson Seumas Mackay is at this cèilidh. A heavy question rests on his mind. What happened to his half breed grandmother, Hannah MacKay?
