The elders of Délįnę say that the protection of Saoyú and Ɂehdacho is a responsibility given to the Sahtúgot’įnę by their ancestors. It is through these places and the stories associated with them that the Elders pass on their knowledge: their history, values, laws, land use skills, land management practices and life-styles.


  • ​Coming together on Great Bear Lake

    Every summer, Délįne residents gather in Saoyú Ɂehdacho NHS to practice traditional skills out on the land and share them with younger community members. It’s out here that the connections between the land, the water and the people are strongest.
