Edı̨ı̨̀ Gots’ǫ Gogǫ̀hłı̨: Where We Were Born

Tłı̨chǫ Birthplace Mapping Project

This report explores the importance of birthplaces through an ethno-historical mapping project. For this project, four elders shared their stories about birthplaces and childbirth practices, in addition to mapping a number of birthplaces on Tłıc̨hǫ lands. These places and the elder’s stories illuminate the importance of learning about birthplaces and listening to their words so that younger generations may carry on the Tłıc̨hǫ way of life.
