How the Fox Got His Crossed Legs is a story from the oral tradition of the Tłįchǫ people. It originates in a time before documented history when animals and people could communicate with each other. This story and others have been told for generations to pass on the knowledge of the Tłįchǫ people and describe significant events in their world.

Included in this book is a multimedia CD-ROM that allows readers to see and hear How the Fox Got His Crossed Legs in the English and Tłįchǫ language. The CD can be inserted into a Macintosh or PC computer or a CD player.

This story is charmingly illustrated by James Wedzin. Wedzin is a Tłįchǫ artist from Behchöko, Northwest Territories. His work can be found in many galleries and private collections. He is well known in Canada for his depictions of northern landscapes, animals and the northern lights.

The book was translated by Rosa Mantla and Mary Siemens. Mantla is the Aboriginal language and culture coordinator for the Tłįchǫ Community Services Agency and Siemens has long been involved with the Tłįchǫ language as a translator, teacher and curriculum development coordinator.
