[Mi'kmaq Portraits Collection, NSM: This man is singing hymns at a Mi'kmaq funeral. Dr. Creighton was in Nyanza and came upon a Mi'kmaq funeral. She stopped and asked permission to tape the hymns. Eventually someone objected, as it was a funeral. This photograph, taken by a friend, is light-damaged in spots.]

Date: 1948

Photographer: anonymous
