Thaidene Nene is the homeland of the people whose ancestors here laid down the sacred, ethical and practical foundations of their way of life. This land has nurtured and inspired countless generations whose prosperity continues to be ensured by a deep intimacy between the people and the land. For the well being of future generations, this way of life needs to be exercised, nurtured and passed on.
The living connection between land and people, between water and land, between forest and barrens makes Thaidene Nene a national treasure of Canada. Carrying these relationships into the future, the ecological integrity and Indigenous way of life of Thaidene Nene will be a living legacy for all, where Indigenous peoples and Parks Canada will welcome the world.
