A Dogrib History. Grade 4-6.
Fraser, Tara
A publication on the history and traditional lifestyle of the Dogrib Tribe of Canada's Northwest Territories is intended for use in grades 4-6. The text is illustrated with numerous drawings. Sections describe the caribou, spruce tree, muskox, fox, ducks and geese and their usefulness to Dogrib people. Activities covered are trading at the trading post, hunting and fishing, drying meat and fish, finding food in the bush, and making tools and weapons. Dogrib enemies, their raids on Dogrib lands, and the making of peace between the tribes are discussed. The Dogrib family and the roles of men and women are explained. Other sections cover Old Fort Rae, Dogrib chiefs, homes and tipis, feasts, cooking and eating tools, dances and drumming, sickness and medicine, and canoes. A final section gives a Dogrib legend called "The Unlucky Brides of the Old Man." (MH)
