The Nation magazine would like to clarify that the Barry Bearskin, who was chronicled in the brief story titled “Goose Thief Apprehended in Chisasibi,” is Barry Bearskin Sr. who hails originally from Eastmain and not Barry Bearskin Jr. who is from Chisasibi.

In that there has been some confusion about the two Bearskins, Bearskin Jr. contacted the Nation to explain that though there is some distant relation between the two, they are not the same person as some may have stipulated.

For that matter, Bearskin Jr. was actually a victim in Bearskin Sr.’s string of wild meat thefts which occurred in the month of September.

The Nation apologizes for any confusion that the story might have caused.
