Resurrecting an ancient route
It's been more than 20 years since anyone regularly made the canoe trip from Gameti to the barren lands, but a group of elders and youth are aiming to change that this week. Archie Wetrade said hunters and their families travelling to the barrens to hunt caribou at the end of the summer had used the ancestral route for millennia.

The car of Behchoko's housing manager, Debbie Penttila, was found burned on the side of Highway 3 last week. According to the local housing authority, Penttila is considering moving back to British Columbia because she does not feel safe in the community.

Manager considering quitting her job
The chair of Behchoko's housing authority says the community housing manager is considering quitting her job and moving back to British Columbia after her car was stolen and vandalized by teenagers two weeks ago. Debbie Pentilla's car was parked in front of her house on the morning of Aug. 9 but went missing that night.

Two youths, Jayda Wetrade and Jersey Dryneck-Mantla, worked together to paint the mural during the Kotsiihtla Project workshop where they learned music, film and painting.
