Oral History

“… in the summer, people make sure they get enough meat … they kill [moose and caribou, and] they clean the skin … And [with] the young caribou skin they make children’s clothing for winter. I had one on and, just like ski pants to it, too, and it’s that caribou skin which is tan[ned], and [you’ll] never be cold in it …”

Louisa Snowshoe, Teetł’it Gwich’in Elder, 1990
