abstract
In the late 1970's, Raymond Yakeleya travelled to five communities in the Mackenzie Delta in the Northwest Territories. He talked with elders, some of them his relatives, from the Slavey and Loucheux tribes about their memories of the past and their thoughts for the future. Using on-location and archival footage, Part 1depicts life as it was as well as the first experiences the people had with missionaries, the Hudson Bay Company and the fur trade. Part 2 deals with the consequences of the arrival of the Europeans including a flu epidemic, the discovery of oil, and the signing of Treaty 21 in 1921.
