There has not been a plane in weeks. It is break up in the Arctic. This is 1966 in Fort Norman on Deh Cho, the McKenzie River in the NWT, Canada. I am a little girl sitting on the banks of this mighty river with every other kid in town. Our ears strain for the sounds of cracking ice that will indicate the mile wide band of solid water in front of us will break up and free us from this prison!

Small bush planes provide us with mail and the occasion movie reel in big cans; we have been watching “The Vikings” a movie starring Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine for the past month. With not much else to do we re-enact this movie everyday at recess and after school. With wild shouts to Odin, a Viking god of some sort we engage in battle. We have all suffered wounds dealt by blows with wooden swords and willow spears made especially for this, no one has lost an eye…yet.
