Cycle of Life
Dene believe that all living things have a spirit, there
is a beginning and an end to everything that lives from
human to plant life. At the same time, the Dene people
believe that we are reincarnated and born again in another
life time. The Inuit people believe that when a person
dies their spirit is passed on to the newborn child named
after them, so names are significant to the Inuit people.
Just as the Inuit, the Dene believe that the spirit lives
on and we are all old souls in a continuing cycle of life.
