An Elder showing different locations on a map

Listening to the Elders

"It was important in my mind that we be able to get as much informational bout the Netsilik Lake area because there's not too many elders left originally form that area.
I though it was important to get the stories written down before all the people who know the stories written down before all the people who know the stories first hand leave us."
