We Remember the Coming of the White Man

A work in progress since the 1970s, We Remember the Coming of the White Man chronicles the history of the Sahtú (Mountain Dene) and Gwinch’in People in the extraordinary time of the early 20th century. Chapters are transcripts of oral histories by ten Elders about their recollections of the early days of fur trading, guns, and flu pandemic; dismay about the way oil and uranium discoveries and pipelines were handled on their land; and the emotional and economic fallout of the signing of Treaty 11. Rich with photographs, Elders’ stories are in English and Dene Gwich’in. Bundled with the book is a remastered DVD version of Raymond Yakeleya’s stunning 1978 film We Remember, with director’s commentary.
