R2MR Train the Trainer Program – Yellowknife, NWT

R2MR Train the Trainer Program – Yellowknife, NWT

August 22 – 26, 2022

The City of Yellowknife is located in the Chief Drygeese territory on Treaty 8 land. From time immemorial, it has been the traditional land of the Yellowknife’s Dene First Nation, and more recently the home of the North Slave Metis Alliance. We respect the histories, language, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant community.

We acknowledge the importance of this land to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships between Nations and improving our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures.
