Description

The People of Denendeh: Ethnohistory of the Indians of Canada's Northwest Territories is an in-depth exploration of the lives and culture of the Dene. This impressive collection brings together the results of June Helm's fifty years of studying the culture and ethnohistory of the Dene, Athapaskan-speaking Indians of the Mackenzie River drainage of the western subarctic. In addition to her previously published essays - with updated commentary where necessary - The People of Denendeh includes unpublished field notes, archival documents, supplementary essays and notes from collaborators, and narratives by the Dene themselves. June Helm is professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Iowa.
