P.O. Box 9
Lower Post, BC  V0C 1W0

This project will assist in documenting ecological change in the Mackenzie River watershed, specifically the Liard River and its tributaries, as perceived by the Kasha Dena. Fifty to one hundred interviews will be conducted, traditional knowledge will be recorded, and water monitoring sites will be identified to record the changes in water depth. This project will support objectives in the Kasha Water Strategy, adopted in 2015, by addressing data gaps within the Kasha Traditional Territory. It will also assist in addressing climate change monitoring in the region.

This project will assist in documenting ecological change in the Mackenzie River watershed, specifically the Liard River and its tributaries, as perceived by the Kasha Dena. Fifty to one hundred interviews will be conducted, traditional knowledge will be recorded, and water monitoring sites will be identified to record the changes in water depth. Baseline monitoring sites will be identified and established in priority water bodies within the Liard River watershed. Parameters to be recorded include water depth, dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, turbidity, conductivity, flow rate and ice thickness. Main outcomes will be the development of permanent water sampling sites, collection and storage of baseline water quality data for high priority water bodies and data sharing. The work will also aim to interview elders and land users and conduct surveys with younger generations. Elder and youth involvement will be built in to the program initiatives for the management of water in the Kaska Traditional Territory. Kaska place names and terminology related to water will also be collected. This project will support objectives in the Kasha Water Strategy, adopted in 2015, by addressing data gaps within the Kasha Traditional Territory. It will also assist in addressing climate change monitoring in the region.
