We want this site to be a celebration of all things Tåîchô. Our traditional lands are a vast area of boreal forests, waterways, and tundra stretching from the northern shores of Great Slave Lake to almost touch the southern shores of Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada. From the borders of Nunavut in the east towards the Mackenzie River in the west, our land is rich in wildlife and other resources.

We are currently requesting proposals for the above stated program and request that you provide your interest for Summer Student funding to our office as soon as possible and before the deadline date of Friday May 24, 2013.
