Special 2021 Edition of We Remember the Coming of the White Man, recognizing the 100th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 11.
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. This 2021 Special Edition of the book recognizes the anniversary of the signing of Treaty 11, which is greatly controversial due to the emotional and economic fallout for the People. The remastered film “We Remember,” is included with the book, on DVD and as digital Vimeo links.
As well as poignant essays on Treaty 11, the book includes transcripts of oral histories by Elders. They talk about the early days of fur trading and guns; the flu pandemic; and dismay about the way oil and uranium discoveries and pipelines were handled on their land. A new section of stories is included as well — stories by Leanne Goose, Antoine Mountain, Raymond Yakeleya, and George Blondin. 100 Artwork by Antoine Mountain and historical photographs.
