Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This document contains the testimony of the author as an expert witness during an inquiry into the possible impacts of constructing a gas pipeline through the Mackenzie River Valley; largely an economic history of the peoples of the region and observations from the author’s own fieldwork among the Slavey. Based on the example of the expansion and collapse of the fur trade, it is argued that the pipeline should only be permitted after a land settlement with, and consent of, the native peoples. A brief epilogue describes events after a delay was imposed.
