which means 'blood rock,' is a sacred site said to be the birthplace of Yamozhah
the legendary Dogrib hero. Characterized by a large bedrock hill that rises
some 320 metres above the surrounding countryside,
Kwe?ehdoň was also used by the Dogrib as a quarry, from which they collected
the raw stone material needed to make tools.
A Dogrib Account of Kwe?ehdoň:
"That mountain called
Kwe?ehdoň is where Yamozhah started off. That mountain is a man,
an old man. It can predict your future for you. If you throw a rock into the
water in the crack, it will make a noise again, and again, and again. That means
you will live a long time. But if you throw a rock and it doesn't make a noise,
then that means you will not live very long..."
Jean Wetrade, February 28, 1992
