The Department of Culture and Lands Protection of the Tlicho Government is inviting Behchoko community members to a public meeting to discuss the 100th anniversary celebration in 2021 of Treaty 11.
In an advisory, the department states that it would like to hear people’s ideas for projects and activities to celebrate this historic anniversary.
Signed in 1921, Treaty 11 is the last of the Numbered Treaties signed between First Nations and the Canadian Government.
It covers almost a million square kilometres of present-day Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut.
The terms of Treaty 11 continue to have ongoing legal and socio-economic impacts on Indigenous communities across all three territories.
The meeting will be held on Thursday November 28th.
It’s being held in the restaurant area of the Sportsplex.
It begins at 5:30 pm with supper and goes until 8:00 pm.
