The Prince Albert Grand Council will canoe with approximately 50 participants. Participants will be from the Athabasca Denésułıné and Woodland Cree communities of Northern Saskatchewan. These participants will include youth, guides, traditional leaders, cooks and staff. The canoe trip will be over a 10-14 day period. The group will canoe through either the Slave River Canoe Route or the Mackenzie River Canoe Route. Through this excursion participants will research aquatic environment, fish species, aquatic species and historical sites. We will work with the University of Alberta to assist us with Tracking Changes in the river system system.

Denesuline Elders and Youth from Black Lake and Fond du Lac in northern Saskatchewan are engaged in a sub-research project with other community partners for the purposes of sharing local and traditional knowledge about the social-ecological changes in the Mackenzie River and Athabasca regions, as well as to determine roles in watershed governance. The first venue for the information conversational knowledge-sharing will occur in a land-based spiritual gathering being hosted by the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nations at Great Slave Lake from August 6 to 11th 2017. The second venue will be an Elder gathering at Black Lake (Athabasca Region) September 29th t0 October 2nd 2017. The purpose of the research project is to collaboratively share and document historical and contemporary observations and perceptions of conditions and changes in the health of the aquatic environment in northern lake and river systems as per the research guidelines provided by the Tracking Change project. The participation of youth in the project is to ensure traditional Dene knowledge is passed on from the Denesuline Elders and community members.

Denesuline Elders, Leaders, Traditional Land Users, and Youth will gather at Hatchet Lake First Nation in Wollaston Lake Saskatchewan to engage in an Athabasca region sector gathering. This gathering will involve the sub-research project in partnership with the University of Alberta for the purposes of sharing local and traditional knowledge about the social-ecological changes occurring in the lakes and rivers within the Athabasca region, as well as to determine roles in watershed governance. Qualitative group and individual interviews will take place on September 12th and 13th, 2018 in Wollaston Lake with a group of 20 participants (10 Elders/Leaders and 10 Youth). This sector gathering will involve several Athabasca communities and a variety of participants which will result in a diversity of perspectives. This research builds on the research interviews that took place in Black Lake First Nation in 2017. Hatchet Lake First Nation is located in the Athabasca region. Youth will be invited to participate in the gathering so that they can learn firsthand cultural and traditional knowledge from their own Leaders, Elders and Traditional Land Users. This research project reinforces the larger Tracking Change Research Project and the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action in building capacity by sharing and learning through Denesuline culture, traditional ecological knowledge, and language. The purpose of the research project is to collaboratively share and document historical and contemporary observations and perceptions of conditions and changes in the health of the aquatic environment in northern lakes and river systems as per the research guidelines identified by the University of Alberta
