The second collage portrays descendants of the original First Nations inhabitants and European newcomers to the Prince Albert Model Forest area.

It is believed First Nations people have been in the model forest area for 9,500 – 10,500 years. The Cree people were the first to live permanently in the Prince Albert Model Forest region. They lived in harmony with one-another and with nature – it was truly a time of “Forests For People”, as the area was blessed with an abundant forest. The well-being and survival of these societies depended on their ability to transform flora and fauna into life-sustaining food, clothing, shelter, medicine and tools.

During the mid 1700s, European traders began to arrive in the Prince Albert Model Forest area. In the mid 1860s, European settlers arrived and began to harvest forests. This was the birth of the forest industry in Prince Albert and surrounding area.
