Deh Cho First Nations, through the Dehcho K’ehodi stewardship program is partnering with the Deh Cho Land Use Planning office, Deh Cho Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management project, the University of Alberta, Thomas Simpson High School, the Deh Gah Elementary and Secondary School and its member communities to develop a regional Dene Place Names project. The project entails the development of a web-based, interactive mapping tools that showcases the oral histories of selected place names. Funding support received from “Tracking Change” will be used to support a youth river trip. Students from the two Deh Cho high schools will paddle from Fort Simpson to Willow Lake River. Local elders and community land users will accompany the youth on this trip. The participating youth will plan an integral role in this project by assisting in the collection of the place name oral histories by gathering photos and videos of these places, and by interviewing their elders about their climate observations. It is through the documentation of our Dene place names that Deh Cho First Nations will explore the issue of climate change within the Mackenzie River Basin system. Kristine Wray, PhD student with the University of Alberta, will be assisting in the research design and methodologies of the project to help ensure it meets the objectives identified through the “Tracking Change” program.
