Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pete Enzoe is Chipewyan Dene from Lutsel K’e, Northwest Territories, on the East Arm of Great Slave Lake. He is a hunter, fisher, and trapper. He sees his role in life as protector of the caribou and spends much of his time “reading” the land as he travels his peoples’ traditional areas. Pete also helps scientists to monitor the herd’s health and migration.
 
In The Caribou Feed Our Soul, the sixth book in The Land is Our Storybook series, Pete takes readers on a respectful caribou harvest. Along the way, he shares creation stories about how his people are descendants of the caribou. He also describes the spiritual areas his community is trying to protect, including Thaidene Nene, which means “land of our ancestors.” Pete’s stories help the reader to understand the rich history of the Chipewyan Dene and their relationship with the caribou today.

About the Author

Pete Enzoe is Chipewyan Dene from Lutsel Ke, Northwest Territories, which is on the East Arm of Great Slave Lake. He is a hunter, fisher, and trapper. He sees his role in life as protector of the caribou and spends much of his time ""reading"" the land as he travels his peoples' traditional areas. Pete also helps to monitor the herds migration and its status with scientists.
 
Mindy Willett is an educator from Yellowknife.  The Caribou Feed Our Soul is the sixth book she has co-authored in The Land is Our Storybook series.  Mindy especially enjoyed learning from Pete and others from the community of Lutsel Ke who passionately shared why the land is so important. 
 
Tessa Macintosh is an award winning Northern photographer who raised her family in Yellowknife.  She is grateful for so many memorable experiences in Lutsel Ke including learning how to tan a hide so that its white as the snow and sharing fresh caribou around a fire.
