The Ɂehdzo Got’ı̨nę Gots’ę́ Nákedı scholarship program seeks to encourage students of the Sahtú Region to enroll in college and university programs in fields related to Environmental Studies and Native Studies. The English term environment comes from the French word environ and means everything that surrounds us. Under such a broad umbrella, there is a host of ways in which environmental studies can be understood. Following the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity, we understand the health of the Sahtú environment to be closely connected with the maintenance of indigenous land-based practices and knowledge.
Thanks to SENES Consultants Limited, Franz Environmental Inc. and Willowlake Environmental for their ongoing funding support as a regional benefit linked to the program to assess environmental impacts on the historic Canol Trail.
