Word of the week - chipewyan

Ɂeténá ké

Ɂeténá ké is the Chipewyan word for Mukluks.

Mukluks are soft hide boots designed for maneuverability and warmth in northern environments. The term mukluk comes from the Yupik word maklak, meaning “bearded seal” — a key animal source for Aboriginal clothing in the North.
