Volume 6 Special Issue 1: The Pan-Territorial On-the-Land Summit

The image shows the landmark cross and tipi in the Yellowknives Dene community of Dettah cloaked by a snowstorm during the Pan-Territorial On-the-Land Summit, held at the community’s Chief Drygeese building in March 2017. The two symbols mark an intersection in time, where the disruptions of colonization are now a piece of the shared history of the North that stretches back thousands of years before the arrival of the Church.
