After more than 60 years of writing down his observations and collecting stories from the community, Brown finally set to work completing a manuscript in the last three years with the help of Ivan Gaetz.
Gaetz, a former Hay River local who now works as a library director at Colorado College in the US, has been working with the author to edit his work and fill in historical citations and references. While there have been numerous articles and chapters of books published sharing the story of the Sahtu Dene people, this book is the first of its kind to fully explore their history over the past 60 years, Gaetz said.
The book candidly speaks about social issues that the Sahtu Dene are still struggling with, such as residential schools and dependence on government assistance, while providing rare details into the traditional practices of the Sahtu people, Gaetz said.

A constant message from their elders is that they must be responsible custodians of the things gifted to them by the earth. To prevent that from happening, we need to educate people about the importance of water. What the community is worried about is that modernization will bring more development projects to the reserve, upsetting the natural balance. The community relies on harvesting fish and wildlife to provide for much of its needs.

A comparatively short but nonetheless highly informative book on the Sahtu Dene people, some of their history, language, customs and superstitions, everyday life and more. I certainly learned a lot about a people I had previously never heard about. Recommended for everyone who is interested in the First Nations of Canada. Aug 20, Fraser Small rated it really liked it.
