With all the recent news on oil spills,floods, earthquakes, I certainly hope that the leaders take a real hard look at the major catastrophies that are damaging the land that sustains all living things that know no boundaries. All we need to do is listen, What is the the creator telling us? With the way things are unfolding now. Remeber the most beautiful gift we have been given from our land is our language, spirituality and way of life from our creator. The question is if it came right down to it how many of our brothers/sisters can survive on the land for months maybe years? When will we use our resources to teach and encourage sustainable development and environmentally friendly energy and products, after all the resources has been extracted. Time to wake up and think of future genrations not making a name for ourselves and not at the expense of others.

Mahsi So'teah! I am Dene and proud to have been born in Liidlii Kue. I have been away from home for some time but never forget where I am from and plan to eventually return to be of service to my people. At this point in time there are new developments in terms of the pipeline giving the green light to move forward. As a member of Liidlii Kue I am very interested in what lies ahead for the Deh Cho in terms of the next stage in the process. Please keep current updates and please do not hesitate to call me directly if anything needs to be done in Alberta. Mahsi!

really ,the updates should be done monthy as most of us that are not in the dehcho,would like to see and know what is really happening back in the homeland,not like a month later when it has happened and it is too late to reply,daily is good,sure there atre worker's that can do their work to keep memebers updated in other parts of the world,it was sad to hear the dehcho gave in to the goverments way,sad too see after all these years of hard work done n=by all the elders saying patience is where it's at, but i guess money talks!! well just gotta go and make the best of what is handed down to the leaders!!

I am just learning about the Deh Cho Process and find it very interesting and that the people of the Deh Cho should remain adamant and be strong in unity towards each other and keep up the good work.

I think it's great idea to have pictures from other communities, But the Community should be the one sending the pix and up date them.

Nahanni Butte, NT, CANADA - Thursday, August 20, 2009 2:30 PM

I am proud to be a Dehchonian, you have done well by recognizing our connections and sacredness of our lands. The Dene Elders have always known how important our land is to our health and wellness. Do not compromise your Landuse Plan, it is based on traditional knowledge and sustainable development, do not agree sign any agreements with them until they are willing to amend their Indian Act policy that can make room for real self government. You already have your treaties that are most powerful tool that you have, they have to abide by the Royal proclaimation, and held accountable by being assertive and strong in your identity.

Hello my name is Kathleen Vaisanen from Edmonton Alberta, my sisters and niece have just returned from Fort Simpson NWT. It was our first visit to Fort Simpson. Our mother's name is Florence Vaisanen (HARDISTY) and was born in Fort Simpson and moved to Edmonton, Alberta many years ago. She passed away peacefully October 26/2008. I want to extend our thanks to the town of Fort Simpson for there gracious and kind giving to the Vaisanen family at this difficult time. While our stay in Fort Simpson was a short one, we had the experience to see the people for there kindness and compassion. We cannot express enough thanks to our relatives for there profound support. Fort Simpson is just a beautiful place to visit, we hope to see it in the summer. I will now make Fort Simpson a place added to my list of vacation stops. Respectfully yours, the Vaisanen Family in Edmonton and Vancouver.

I really miss the Dehcho, and wish, almost daily that I was back. I miss my friends and the north. I was very proud of the work I did for the Dehcho and would love to be able to continue it, but for now the south is my home, but my heart will always be on the shores of the Mackenzie.

Owen Sound, ON, CANADA - Friday, June 13, 2008 01:16 PM

This web site has come a long ways since the conception days. It brought back many memeories just watching the slide show on the home page. I have taken it to the AFN level..., but I think the Deh Cho needs to be aware of the plans to shut off even more MacKenzie River water with the new "site C dam" that is proposed for the Peace River. In the 25 years I lived in Fort Simpson... one of the last memories I have is standing in the middle of the river at Rabbitskin and the water level at mid summer did not come up to my belly button. With this new dam they are proposing I would think that there will be much more collateral damage than the BC gov't is letting loose. I will always consider DehCho home and I miss Deh Cho!!!

I had the great privilige of working at DFN and gaining knowledge in working wih the staff. I commend these individuals in their committment to the process of looking out for our future. More acknowledgement of these people would go a long way in promoting ourselves as a whole. I am a mother of three and a full time student in the Bachelor of Education Program in Fort Smith. I feel that more support for our people pursuing an education is an integral part in promoting ourselves as a nation. Keep up the good work. Mahsi Cho!

I once lived in Fort Providence (late 60s and early 70s)- my husband taught school here. I really enjoyed your slide pictures. However, it would be nice if you put the names of the people on the picture. It has been a long time and I am sure the people I knew as well as myself have changed in their looks (as have I) - we are all a bit older now. Please say hello for me to everyone there, especially Jim Thom, Margaret Vandal & family, and all those who remember me. I adopted a son who is Dene - Scott. Bye for now. Brenda.

Hello, My name is Leroy Begay and I'm a member of the Navajo Nation. I've always hear that we had relatives that speak our tongue to the north and just wanted to see exactly where this tribe was in relation to the white man's maps. Tribal history and oral history in any media would be appreciate since I like to learn all I can about Dene history. Leroy

During the forum there was an announcement of the launch of the VTAC(Virtual Tour of Aboriginal Canada) website. I was just interested to know if anyone has ever heard of it. You can check out this portal at this link it is very interesting and as aboriginal people we are encouraged to contribute.
