Ekwò zò gha dzô nats’êdè / “We Live Here For Caribou”
Cumulative Impacts Study on the Bathurst Caribou
This study is based on the traditional knowledge (TK) of the people in Wekweètì, Northwest Territories. It investigates the connection between Tłıc̨ hǫ and the Bathurst caribou from three perspectives: 1) the importance of caribou in the hunting economy, and thus as a foundation for maintaining the Tłıc̨hǫ culture, language and way of life; 2) cumulative impacts on the herd and 3) the connection between ecosystem and culture, and the co-dependent erosion of biological and cultural diversity. Lastly, the report outlines several steps to resolve these issues.
