Site welcoming at Kwetııɂaà

On Thursday July 19, 2018, Tłı̨chǫ Government staff, Elders and environmental monitoring graduates welcomed CIRNAC (Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada) and AECOM Engineering to the former Kwetııɂaà (Rayrock) mine site. AECOM is the new contractor responsible for engineering the cleanup of the site. We flew in from Frank Channel and held a feeding of the fire ceremony with drumming and prayers to welcome the new contractor to Tłı̨chǫ lands. Kwetııɂaà is a very important project for the Department of Culture and Lands Protection and we are working hard to get the site remediated to the satisfaction of the Tłı̨chǫ Elders, Tłı̨chǫ citizens and Tłı̨chǫ Government staff.
