DFN Grand Chief Samuel Gargan speaking after a screening of the film “Dehcho Ndehe Gha Nadaotsethe: Fighting for our Land" on May 17, 2010 on Algonquin Territory.
“Dehcho Ndehe Gha Nadaotsethe: Fighting for our Land,” is a project of the Dehcho First Nations (DFN) Communiciations team. It brings together in one film key moments of Dehcho history, and explains our struggle to retain control of our homeland.
The Decho First Nations have been involved in formal negotiations with the governments of Canada and the Northwest Territories for over thirty years.
"We, the Dehcho Dene have been struggling since 1969 for rightful recognition of our rights in a just and fair manner. When an Agreement with the territorial and federal governments is reached, we will have the governing authority and the resources to protect our lands and ensure that we can continue to live according to Dene values and principles in all aspects of our lives."
"This film is an invaluable educational and mobilization tool to inform and involve all members of our communities in the process of reaching an agreement that allows future generations to continue to live in a way that honours and respects the land of our ancestors."
