SPECIAL 2021 EDITION, recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Signing of Treaty 11. We Remember the Coming of the White Man chronicles the history of the Saht? (Mountain Dene) and Gwinch'in People in the extraordinary time of the early 20th century. The 2021 Special Edition, recognizing the anniversary of the signing of Treaty 11, includes brave new content in both the text and on the remastered DVD, included with the book. Chapters in the book are transcripts of oral histories by Elders about the early days of fur trading, guns, and flu pandemic; dismay about the way oil and uranium discoveries and pipelines were handled on their land; and the emotional and economic fallout of the signing of Treaty 11. Many chapters are translated into Dene Gwich'in language. The audiobook, produced by Leanne Goose and read by Dene, M?tis, and Inuvialuit narrators, is also now available from Audible.ca.

Review quote

"Our traditional knowledge is recorded in the stories of our ancestors since time immemorial. In this book, you will read our oral history and traditions that are our Dene parables, used to guide ourselves and our People."

--Dene National Chief Norman Yakeleya

"With rare mastery of his filmmaking craft, Dene storyteller Raymond Yakeleya carries on in this book, bringing a former and still ever-present world of wolf, bear, and raven, ik'o, medicine, magic, and mystery to life, to modern meaning." ?

--Antoine Mountain, author of From Bear Rock Mountain: The Life and Times of a Dene Residential School Survivor
