Dene Mapping Project
The original mapping was completed in the 1970s and 1980s in our communities and at the University of Alberta. The data was put on a software program that is now outdated. Thus, Dene Nation is in the process of updating the software and preparing it for community use.
Our communities have the right to this data and must use it to prove their occupation of the land and to support land management plans, economic development, hunting and trapping intuitive and major developments and more.
