Xàgots’eèhk’ǫ̀ translates to having a campfire in the Tłı̨chǫ language. Fire is important to Northerners; a campfire is where people gather, share stories, seek warmth, cook food, and many other activities. Like a campfire, this journal is a space to exchange information and bring together voices from across the North.
