Sahtu Dene And Metis Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement
“This agreement is in principle an important step,” McLeod told a crowd in the Royal Canadian Legion in the community on Wednesday. “Today`s milestone and achievement is something that should be celebrated by all northern Europeans.” The Secretariat of Sahtu Incorporated (SSI) is the coordinating body of the seven companies of the Land and the main interlocutor of federal and territorial governments in the fields of education, health, environment and economic development. The ISS also holds rural funds in the confidence of rural societies and facilitates business-specific decisions at the regional level. The Sahtu Dene and Metis received a tax-free payment of $75 million ($1990) over a 15-year period. Under the agreement, you will receive a share of the annual resources generated by the Development of the Mackenzie Valley, including a share of Norman Wells` oil and gas licences. The Sahtu Dene Council must be consulted before surfaces are developed for oil or gas exploration, development or production; and before any mineral exploration that requires a land use permit or water permit. (g) to ensure that the traditional harvest by other Aboriginal peoples harvested in the residential area can be taken into account in this agreement; and (c) to recognize and promote the Sahtu Dene and Metis way of life, which is based on cultural and economic relations between them and the country; (g) Sahtu Dene and Metis have the right to participate in decision-making on the exploitation, management and conservation of land, water and resources; At the time of Berger`s investigation, George Barnaby of Fort Good Hope was elected a member of the territorial council that represented the Mackenzie/Grand Bear area. He resigned during his tenure and was elected vice-president of the Indian Brotherhood of the NWT (now Dene Nation). He became a strong supporter of the general land agreement. Regional and regional district borders are necessarily temporary to some extent, as there are overlaps in traditional land use areas; There were no fixed borders in the clan`s old territory system. Although this issue affects all Aboriginal regions in three northern territories, it is particularly complex for Sahtu because it is located in the centre and shares borders with Yukon First Nations to the west; Gwich`in, Inuvialuit and Nunavummiut (the people of Nunavut); the Dogrib of the Northern Slave region, which falls under Treaty 11 to the east, and the Deh Cho First Nation to the south.
