LAND, LANGUAGE, CULTURE. FOREVER.

MISSION
Dene Nahjo’s mission is to advance social and environmental justice for northern peoples while promoting Indigenous leadership by fostering emerging leaders. We strive to live, learn and celebrate our cultures, languages and Indigenous values on the land, guided by our elders, to strengthen relationships in the North.

GOALS

Dene Nahjo strives to implement outreach efforts to Indigenous communities focused on cultural preservation, revitalization and connection to the land as a basis for long-term and substantive change in Denendeh. Our goal is to accomplish this by advocating for sustainability and the incorporation of a long-term vision informed by Dene values for the future of Denendeh, and by researching and communicating on key issues to provide an informed, alternative voice on public policy issues of concern to Northerners. Through this, we hope to build and sustain a network of local leaders and change-makers for positive change within Denendeh, while engaging with key Indigenous organizations on Indigenous and northern issues.
