An article about the Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area that was published in the summer 2021 issue of the Nature Conservancy magazine has won a 2022 Folio Award for long-form feature content. The Folio Eddie and Ozzie Awards celebrate excellence in editorial content and design across print and digital media.
The article, titled "The Guardians," documents the efforts of Łutsël K’é Dene to protect our land, efforts which led to the creation of the Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area in 2019. The article features the voices of JC Catholique, Doris Terri Enzoe, Denecho Catholique, Iris Catholique, and Addie Jonasson.
This award is a testament to the importance of taking a collaborative approach to sharing the stories of Indigenous communities. Mahsı to all who were involved!
The Thaidene Nëné Xá Dá Yáłtı (the Operational Management Board), which in Dënesųłıné means ‘the people who speak for Thaidene Nëné’ is seeking to have a logo/brand developed that will serve as the central visual identity for the board and Thaidene Nëné.
The logo would be used on multiple items: websites, social media accounts, letterhead, business cards, brochures, banners, other print materials, signage, staff uniforms, vehicles, boats, and promotional items. The logo may be used independently, or as co-branding with the logos of the four operational partners.
If you have experience developing logos and this is something that would be of interest to you we would love to hear from you. If you would like some more information or have further questions, please contact Jon Weller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
