Our Whole Gwich'in Way of Life Has Changed / Gwich'in K'yuu Gwiidandi' Tthak Ejuk Gonlih

Stories from the People of the Land

A project originally conceived to document the biographies of Elders by the Gwich'in Social and Cultural Institute, Our Whole Gwich'in Way of Life Has Changed / Gwich'in K'yuu Gwiidandi' Tthak Ejuk Gonlih is an invaluable compilation of historical and cultural information. The stories of twenty-three Gwich'in Elders from the Northwest Territories communities of Fort McPherson, Tsiigehtshik, Inuvik, and Aklavik talk about the pleasures of living and travelling on the land. Their distinctive voices speak to their values, world views, and cultural assumptions, while McCartney assists by providing context and background on the lives of the narrators and their communities. Scholars, students, and all those interested in Canadian/Northern history, anthropology, Indigenous Studies, oral history, or cultural geography will benefit from this critical resource.Contributors: Antoine Andre, Caroline Andre, Hyacinthe Andre, Annie Benoit, Pierre Benoit, Sarah Bonnetplume, Marka Bullock, Lydia Elias, Mary M.
