Part of The Hunt and The Walk series

Available in English and Slavey

The Kahso Go'tine survive on caribou and fish, heat their homes with wood and haul water from the lake. Since their present-day community was established in 1962, they have lived in isolation and maintained their traditions. But recently electric power, telephone service, satellite television, oil exploration, and access to the community via a winter road have meant a host of new influences.

To balance the inevitable changes ahead, every autumn the entire community of 100 people move to the "barrenlands" for the traditional caribou hunt. They may use a twin engine aircraft to get there, but they still butcher and pack the animals in the ways of their elders. The hunt points to a hopeful future where tradition and development can exist and prosper side by side.
