L-R: Susan Abram Sack, Louise Abram, Jeremiah Bartlett Alexis (Jerry Lonecloud), Joe Syllaboy. Harry Piers catalogues this photo as having been taken at Shubenacadie. "Photo of Micmac Indians at Spring Brook Reservation, near Shubenacadie, Hants. Co., N.S., June 1927. (1) Joe Selleboy of Bayfield, Antig. Co.; (2) "Dr." Jeremiah Lone-cloud of Miller's Lake, Waverly (in swallow-tail coat which had been given to him); (3) Old Mrs. Louise Abram, Micmac woman from Richibucto, N.B.; (4) Her daughter, wife of Henry Sack of Truro Reservation. Nos. 3 & 4 are in native costume. Shows an Indian (camp) in background, and the Indian schoolhouse in the distance." [Harry Piers, Nova Scotia Museum Accession Book III:6085.] It may be Truro, N.S., instead; compare it with the previous image in this database.
