Wow, interesting thread! I haven't read all the replys, only the first page, so I don't know if anyone asked! I live in Yellowknife, and I am from
the Gwichin Nation with my Dogrib girlfriend. I have heard of stories of the Nagah, aka Bush Man, from my girls friends and family! Apparently, the
Nagah will take you away if you go out into the woods alone, mostly told to kids to stop them from getting lost.
But the story goes further with adults, with sightings of the Nagah, some say it's like a Sasquatch and others say they are shape-shifters, able to
change from human into an animal, while still others claim they are people that still live off the land their whole lives. The area is to the west of
Dogrib lands. In fact, my girlfriends mother, said that her uncle was from Nahanni Valley and was also a bushman. The story is that he used to come
to Rae Edzo once in a while, then he said he won't be coming back, and he wants to stay in the wild. His brother stayed in town, and misses his
bushman sibling. His brother tries to go see him every year but never has made contact. To this day, once a year he goes on a long journey looking
for him. I haven't seen any Nagah myself, nor have I heard of the Naha tribe before today.
PS. So I guess my question is, do you think the Naha tribe is just the white translation of the Dogrib word Nagah? Just wondering! Oh yeah, star
and flag for this thread!
