2016-ongoing Sahtú Research Library

This project aims to create an online library ofSahtú-related research that will be accessible for community members and approved outside researchers – a one-of-a-kind online library of Sahtú research for Sahtu people!

The library began in 2016 and really started to grow in 2017, through the work of several researchers who generously shared their materials with one of the primary managers of the library. Now, in September 2018, the library includes one thousand references! A citation (the title, author, year, and place published) is always available so that anyone who uses the library can go find the piece. And for most of the references, the entire written piece (journal article, newspaper article, report, etc.) is attached so it can be conveniently read on the spot. The library includes research about human health, species at risk, environmentalism, land-based education, traditional knowledge, addiction, radiation, mental health, and many more topics.

The library is not yet available to the public, but we are hoping to get to that point very soon. Once the library is publicly accessible, we think it will be a great resource to let Sahtu people know about past and current work done around their region, so we can all be in the know about the place we live and love. If you know about any research that should be included in the library, please send us a message at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
