Where Happiness Dwells presents a
history of the Dane-zaa people based on
oral histories collected over a half century
of fieldwork. Taking a poetic form that
does justice to the rhythm of Dane-zaa
storytelling, these powerful stories span
the full length of history, from the story of
creation to the fur trade, from the arrival of
missionaries to cases heard in the Supreme
Court of Canada. Elders document key
events as they explain the very nature of
the universe and how people and animals
learned to live together on the land.
Learn how these oral histories have been so carefully preserved
and how the Dane-zaa have succeeded in the modern world.
