This paper gives an account of what Dene residents of the Sahtu Region have to say about globalisation and petroleum development. Starting in 2005, we interviewed people across the Sahtu Region. Respondents recognize the short-term advantages of building a pipeline, but they are concerned about the long-term impact on the environment that ensures their livelihood.
