After the GNWT released two reports on land claims in Denendeh last week, the Ka´tl’odeeche First Nation raised its voice.

In a press release, the KFN said they were “not provided with advance copies of the reports and were not invited to discuss the substance of these reports with the federal and territorial governments in Ottawa, in spite of participating in both review processes, being discussed and referenced in both reports, and requesting copies of these reports in early February.”

The KFN describes this as a “basic lack of respect by both governments that does not speak well to the notion of reconciliation. ”

They believe “that this oversight can be remedied, and looks forward to further negotiations with the federal and territorial governments.”
