Athabascan RavenWHOUY SZE KUINALTH
"Teaching Our Many Grandchildren"

 

 

 

Athabascan culture and tradition has always held the environment as an important priority. Our lives have been tied, traditionally, to the land. There are rules for treating the land and the ecosystems. These rules have been passed down from generation to generation - as far back as Tribal memory serves; "Take only what is needed. Do not waste. Treat animals with respect."

We know that if these traditions and others are followed then the land will continue to provide for us, the water will be good, and the Village will experience good fortune.
