Bonus paperback book is included with each DVD purchase:
We Remember: The Coming of The White Man
which contains interviews of Elders in both Dene and English.

In the late 1970s, 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. With the help of camera operator Bob Charlie and editor Bill Stewart, Yakeleya created a 60 minute documentary in two parts. We Remember is a significant time capsule that reflects on the history of these people whose their lives were forever altered by the influx of settlers into their traditional territories.

Using on-location and archival footage, Part I depicts life as it was, showing tents, boats, guns, relationships of the family and the land, as well as the first experiences the people had with missionaries, the Hudson Bay Company and the fur trade.

Part II deals with the consequences of the arrival of the Europeans--a flu epidemic carried by the boat The Distributor, the discovery of oil at Norman Wells and the signing of Treaty 11 in 1921. As this part of the film investigates history as the people remember it, it sheds light on life in the 1970s and how the children were inheriting a vastly different world than their ancestors.

The DVD includes the 2010 restored film (both parts).
