Thaidene Nëné Strategic Plan, 2020-2025
We developed this five-year strategic plan to help guide our leadership and staff as we work with the parties to lay the foundation of Thaidene Nëné.
The Thaidene Nëné Indigenous Protected Area is governed by two agreements. The first with the Government of Canada covers the portion of Thaidene Nëné designated a national park reserve. The second with the Government of the Northwest Territories covers the portions of Thaidene Nëné designated as a territorial protected area and a wildlife conservation area.
Community History of Łutsël K’é
In 1997, community members came together to document the history of Łutsël K’é. The product of that work was this timeline of Łutsël K’é Dene history.
We are the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation. Our vision for Thaidene Nëné is:
Nuwe néné, nuwe ch'anıé yunedhé xa (Our land, our culture for the future).
We’re working with our partners to permanently protect Thaidene Nëné—part of our
huge and bountiful homeland around and beyond the East Arm of Tu Nedhé.
