Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

Dinjii Vadzaih Dhidlit: The Man Who Became a Caribou, by Craig Mishler and Kenneth Frank, is a new bilingual volume based on a series of oral interviews with Gwich'in elders living in rural northeast Alaska and the Yukon Territory. Richly illustrated, the book covers a wide range of topics based on traditional harvesting and use of caribou from ancient to contemporary times. It also reveals traditional beliefs and taboos about caribou and includes a detailed naming system for caribou anatomy.
