 About working in the Sahtú Region

The Sahtú is one of the most ecologically diverse regions in North America, spanning Shúhtaot’ı̨nę Nę́nę́ (Mountain Dene territory in the Mackenzie Mountains), Dela Got'ı̨nę Nę́nę́ (End of the Treeline Dene territory), a portion of Dǝho (the Mackenzie River, the longest river system in Canada), and Sahtú (Great Bear Lake, the eight largest lake in the world). The cultures of our five communities reflect this diversity arising from the landscape, and our Dene and Métis proudly maintain their traditional harvesting practices and are building strength in environmental governance through a series of conservation initiatives. The SRRB’s office is located in Tulı́t'a (Where the Waters Meet), a vibrant community of about 500 on the junction of Dǝho and Sahtú Dǝ. Since long before the days of the fur trade, this has been a summer gathering place, at the heart of an ancient cultural landscape featuring P’ǝtenı̨ɂa (Bear Rock), the symbol of the Dene Nation. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound in the surrounding area, along with opportunities to learn local arts and crafts and other cultural practices.

About the SRRB

The SRRB is mandated to address the objectives of the Sahtú Dene and Métis Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement related to wildlife, habitat, and harvesting. We work closely with local harvesting committees (Ɂehdzo Got’ı̨ nę - Renewable Resources Councils) in the five communities of the Sahtú Region, Northwest Territories, and with regional forums including the Nę K’ǝ Dene Ts’ı̨lı̨ (Living On the Land) Forum, Sahtú Youth Network, and the new Sahtú Nę K’ǝ́dikǝ network. The SRRB has adopted an innovative cross-cultural and decolonizing approach and supports the training of Sahtú beneficiaries.
