Former Premier of the Northwest Territories Stephen Kakfwi transforms politics into philosophy and sheds light on a history that too many Canadians have long ignored. Stephen Kakfwi was born in a bush camp on the edge of the Arctic Circle in 1950. In a family torn apart by tuberculosis, alcohol, and the traumas endured by generations in residential school, he emerged as a respected Dene elder and eventually the Premier of the Northwest Territories. Kakfwi, schooled on civil rights and 1960s protest songs, dedicated himself to supporting chiefs in their claim to land that had been taken away from them and in their determination to seize control of the colonial political system. Kakfwi's life blends traditional Dene practices with the daily demands of political office--hunting moose one day and negotiating with European diamond merchants the next. Throughout his career, Kakfwi understood that he held the power to make change and through traditional storytelling, he has helped to change the story of the North. In his candid description of the loneliness of leadership and his embrace of Dene spirituality, Kakfwi's Stoneface transforms politics into philosophy and an intensely personal guide to reconciliation.
