John Norbert is a respected elder in Tsiigehtchic, N.W.T. who didn’t miss a single governance meeting at the Gwich’in Gathering. In one of the meetings, Gwich’in Council International provided an update on their work within the Arctic Council, where they govern alongside nations like Finland and Norway. John told members he was worried about the Mackenzie River, on which his community depends for food and transportation. He asked the council to seek assistance in uncovering why it was running so low, which he suspects may be from unremediated dams used for mining.

Happy Nunavut Day! On July 9 1993, the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement was signed. The people of this land celebrate this day and the give thanks for the leadership of their elders. I too am appreciative of the Kitikmeot elders for their willingness to let us responsibly work on this land. I've gone from a very dark time in my life, to this sacred land of the midnight sun, and I couldn't be happier. #nunavutday #camplife #thisisanadventure #letmetellyouaboutmyboat #wwwwaterboy #arcticocean #indigenousrights #indigenousland #indigenousgovernance #decolonize #sacredplaces

Today, I successfully defended my Community Governance Project for a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance 🎓 I worked on a traditional knowledge project with my cousin / uncle Fred Henry. Knowledge has been the most valuable gift that has been given to me on this journey. I now have a responsibility to keep, share, and use the knowledge that has been gifted to me.
This MA journey has wrapped up, but like my Uncle Fred has said, “this is only just the beginning!” Here’s to looking forward to what the future brings ✌🏽

On this, #dominionofcanada day, let's look past the #patriotic (#patriarchic) #nonsense of how we want to be seen by the world, and instead do the work to see what #Canada is actually #representing ... only then can we truly create the place we want to live in. (I know this is a couple days late, but whatever .. it was my birthday..😛) #canadaday🇨🇦 is a celebration of #whitesupremacy and #genocide #letsbehonest the word #reconciliation makes #whitepeople feel better about #doingnothing let's actually work towards #indigenousgovernance and give #turtleisland back to those who hold it #intrust

The NLC’s Full Council meets at #Barunga.
The NLC will join the three other NT Land Councils for a joint meeting later this week, before they all sign an MOU on Friday with the NT Government to lay the foundations for consultations leading towards a #Treaty.

An important part of what we do here at Dechinta is decentralized non-hierarchical method of governance. That means that every day we come together in a circle to share where we’re at, what we need, and what we can give. Some days this is easy, some days there is laughter, some days there are frustrations, and some days there are tears. Today was a day of tears, vulnerability, deep sharing and deep love. #indigenousgovernance #healingontheland

Morning moosehide magic #indigenousgovernance with Master Moosehide Professor Celine Marlowe #welcometoyourclassroom

Out on our land. It's healing. We tap the maple trees. I drill a hole and scream as I see maple water come out. I put the tap in. We pause for a moment to listen. It's magical. #indigenousgovernance #traditional #mapleseason

So long to my home. Wish I didn’t have to go. Judging by the clouds I’ll be leaving with snow. #treaty8territory #countryfood #indigenousgovernance
