Over the next year, a series of new documentaries, “on the Land,” will showcase the people of the Northwest Territories (NWT). Through stories, interviews, photos, and videos the project will explore the cultural and biological significance of this area and why the stewardship of wildlife, land, water, and other natural resources in this region is so important.

In partnership with Tides Canada and the Government of the Northwest Territories, Pat Kane, a Yellowknife photographer, writer, and journalist will travel to the NWT communities of Behchoko, Jean Marie River, Fort Good Hope, Trout Lake, and Kakisa to gather stories and photos for the project.

This is an ongoing series with the first story online now. Ka’a’gee Tu: Between the Willows: www.ontheland.net/kaageetu
