A young Dene girl gives thanks to what the beautiful land has to offer . The grandfather rocks surround the girl , showing off their beautiful colours.
The girl sits for a very long time, thinking about her ancestors before her, & how they would travel the land.
“We watch over one another, spending time together out on our Ancestors land. Family is time to hunt & fish and go camping out on the land. Family is being grateful for one another and loving each family member in a positive way, always.”
