Dechinta: Dene Self-Determination in Theory and Practice

FNIS is now offering new land-based course at the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning. This land-based intense delivery course will critically explore the Dene struggle for self-determination since the establishment of the Indian Brotherhood of the Northwest Territories in 1970. Particular attention will be paid to examining the ways in which the Dene and other Indigenous communities in the North have sought to overcome the ongoing effects of colonialism through a variety of means, including efforts aimed at achieving cultural recognition through land claims, self-government and economic development, and by reconnecting and revitalizing the land-based practices and relationships that form the core of many Indigenous peoples’ identities and ways of life.
