Synopsis: This impressive collection brings together the results of June Helm's fifty years of studying the culture and ethnohistory of the Dene, Athapaskan-speaking Indians of the Mackenzie River drainage of the western subarctic. In addition to her previously published essays - with updated commentary where necessary - The People of Denendeh includes unpublished field notes, archival documents, supplementary essays and notes from collaborators, and narratives by the Dene themselves.
Review: "June Helm's fifty-year retrospective of Dene life is a landmark in northern scholarly literature, as well as a splendid token of her esteem for these extraordinary people. The breadth and depth of knowledge contained in this book are truly amazing - a tour de force from one of anthropology's most respected scholars." Robert R. Janes, founding director of the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre and adjunct professor of archaeology at the University of Calgary "The People of Denendeh is an exciting book. It is certain to become a valuable overview of and sourcebook on the history, society, and culture of the Mackenzie drainage Athapaskans, or Dene, especially the Slaveys and Dogribs, among whom Helm has devoted decades of innovative field research." Robert Jarvenpa, author of Northern Passage: Ethnography and Apprenticeship among the Subarctic Dene
