Gwich'in Traditional Place Names

On June 21, 2013 the Government of the Northwest Territories officially recognised over 400 traditional Gwich'in place names reflecting their land use across the Gwich’in Settlement Area of the NWT. This exhibit overed the twenty-year effort by the Gwich'in Social and Cultural Institute to bring this to fruition as well as a wall map that was developed to highlight the new place names.
