The Thaidene Nëné Department is hiring four half-time guardians for two-year term positions to work with the year-round Ni Hat'ni Dene program.
Ni Hat’ni Dene means watchers of the land in Dënesųłıné. Ni Hat'ni Dene are the guardians of the Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area. They maintain the cultural and ecological integrity of Thaidene Nëné; they welcome and educate visitors to the area; and they transmit cultural and scientific knowledge to younger generations.
Applicants should have strong knowledge of LKDFN's natural and cultural heritage, be physically fit, and have experience operating boats, skidoos, and small engines. The ability to speak and understand the Dënesųłıné language is an asset.
The deadline to apply is Friday, March 31, at 5pm. Interested applicants should submit an updated resume and cover letter to the Thaidene Nëné Office or LKDFN Office Reception or email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The parties are seeking expressions of interest for a contract opportunity to support the creation of an operational vision for the Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area.
Thaidene Nëné Xá Dá Yáłtı is the operational management board of the Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area. Board members are appointed by the Łutsël K’é Dene First Nation, Northwest Territory Métis Nation, Parks Canada, and the Government of the Northwest Territories, and supported by senior representatives from each of the parties. Although decision-making is shared, the parties have different operational responsibilities and capacities. As the operational parties work to implement the vision for Thaidene Nëné set out in the establishment agreements, ensuring operational coordination, growth, and efficiencies is a key priority.
This contract involves background research, interviews, workshop design and facilitation, and reporting.
The parties wish for the contract to commence as soon as possible with a target completion of fall 2023.
Please direct any questions and expressions of interest to Jon Weller (firstname.lastname@example.org | 867-767-9233 ext. 53068) before Friday, April 21.
