My name is Ivan Gaetz, author of this web page. A couple of years ago I was asked by Bern Will Brown to help him bring to publication his manuscript called "The Artcic Hareskin." Since then, I have had the privilege to work closely with Bern on editing the text, adding to it, and supplying historical and contemporary references to the persons and events cited. I also had the honor to work with editors at Dundurn Press, the largest wholy Canadian-owned press in the country. Jane Gibson and Barry Penhale were gracious, sagacious and entirely phenomenal to work with at Dundurn. Laura Harris, also at Dundurn, skillfuly guided the final touches.
I believe this book, Bern's latest, provides an important glimpse into the history, life and culture of the Sahtu Dene, a people little known outside the boundaries of the Northwest Territories. It chronicles a way of life rapidly changing, taking on new froms of expression, while wrestling with the increasing advances of the 21st century.
I trust you will enjoy reading this book as much as I did working on it.
Many thanks to Bern Will Brown for another gripping acount of life in the Canadian Arctic.
