This is one of two old side by side cemeteries, both located at the entrance of Salmon Bay.

This is situated on a site where a little community of seal hunters lived many years ago. Inhabitants of the region still often visit this site during summer.

These cemeteries aren't used anymore, but family members of the deceased still take care of the graves. Cemeteries can only be reach by boat, and if you want to go there, I strongly suggest that somebody who knows the place well, comes with you.

I would like to thank Mr Claude Roberts for bringing me to the site in 2002.

I compiled this transcription in June of 2002.
