Analysis of Current and Future Value of Indigenous Guardian Work in Canada’s Northwest Territories - Indigenous Leadership Initiative and Tides Canada
'Analysis of Current and Future Value of Indigenous Guardian Work in Canada’s Northwest Territories' shared by the Indigenous Leadership Initiative and Tides Canada, is an analysis of the Lutsel K’e and Dehcho guardian programs in the northwest territory region. This resource can be helpful for describing the rationale and benefits when proposal writing and fund-raising. These programs deliver a social return on investment of $2.5 for every $1 invested that is likely to increase over time and helps to strengthen the conservation economy. The programs provide opportunities for Dene people to deepen their connection with their culture, land, and water while engaging in meaningful employment that values traditional knowledge.
