Reindeer herding is when reindeer are herded by people in a limited area. Currently, reindeer are the only semi-domesticated animal which naturally belongs to the North. Reindeer herding is conducted in 9 countries: Norway, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Greenland, Alaska (United States), Mongolia, China and Canada. A small herd is also maintained in Scotland

Otto Binder, the Mackenzie Delta's legendary reindeer herder, game warden and RCMP special constable, died Thursday at the age of 9. Otto taught southern RCMP officers how to survive on the land and acted as an interpreter. Lloyd said his father travelled thousands of kilometres by dog team with the RCMP and was expert at quickly converting foreign English words into Inuvialuktun. He was just a natural fit for the job," Lloyd said. He was a bit of a loose end.

An epic experiment of cultural evolution.

In the 1920s the traditional migration routes of wild caribou changed, making it difficult for native Inuit hunters. Faced with a crisis of Inuit survival and having observed the success of reindeer herding in Alaska, the Canadian government established the practice in the Mackenzie Delta area. To help the Inuit make the shift to the new economy, Scandinavian reindeer herders, the Sami, were brought to Canada. To bureaucrats, changing the Inuit from a hunting-gathering culture to a herding-nomadic culture appeared straightforward and simple. Reality proved otherwise.

The Reindeer Herders of the Mackenzie Delta is the fascinating true history of the Canadian Reindeer Experiment as experienced by Otto Binder, an Inuit herder, his Sami wife, Ellen Pulk Binder, and their son, Lloyd Binder, who continues to herd reindeer.

The book explores their struggles and ultimate survival. Their story is also an account of the survival of two circumpolar cultures -- Inuit and Sami -- in a global society.

With contemporary and archival photographs, The Reindeer Herders of the Mackenzie Delta recounts a true-life adventure with valuable insights for contemporary readers.
