The Ya’thi Nene Lands and Resource Office (YNLRO) works to promote and enhance the environmental, social, cultural, economic health and well-being of the Athabasca Basin Communities. This year, the YNLRO will host the First Annual Science/Cultural Camp July 24-31st near the Athabasca Sand Dunes, located on the south side of Lake Athabasca, 20 km west of Fond du Lac Denesuline First Nation. The goal is to raise awareness of the type of environmental monitoring that takes place in the Athabasca by the CanNorth Company. Teaching high school students different types of activities initiated on an annual basis by CanNorth, included but not limited to fish dissection, plant identification, field assessment, water and sediment sampling, water temperature and effects. Cultural activities will include caribou and moose hide making, beading, dry meat and dry fish making, hand games, crafts, fishing and elders circle talk. Added features will be provided by Diversity Talent and Bearpaw Communications will be filming to produce a Community Education Video. The Canoe Quest will be a 5-day journey in August of traveling along the trails of our ancestors to experience living off the land and the importance of traditional knowledge related to the waterways as a source of sustenance and for travel, and to observe the impacts of climate change and development on these lands and areas through stories and teachings shared by elders.
