Abstract: Walking Together is a report on the political, economic, social, and cultural concerns of the people of the western Northwest Territories. It looks at the issues of land, spirituality, culture, the economy, housing, alcohol, land claims, the Meech Lake accord, education, and recreation. The author visited 22 communities and interviewed 250 people in compiling the report. The recommendations are for action that could be taken by the Roman Catholic diocese specifically, but the ideas underlying them have wider application. One of the recommendations is for a social justice ministry to help tackle the problems identified.
