This fictional coming-of-age story traces a young girl's reluctant journey by canoe through the ancestral lands of the Tłı̨chǫ People, as she gradually comes to understand and appreciate their culture and the significance of their fight for self-government. Eleven-year-old Julia has lived in Wekweètì, NWT, since she was four. Although the people of Wekweètì have always treated her as one of their own, Julia sometimes still feels like an outsider, disconnected from the traditions and ancestral roots that are so central to the local culture.
