Lands and Rights

Dene Lands and Rights program is comprised of several sections, the largest being the Community Based Monitoring Program (CBM) and Traditional Lands and Resource Management Plan (TLRUMP).

 

The primary role of the CBM team is to protect and keep our traditional lands healthy and support our Nation's cultural way of life. One example is to collect water quality and quantity at various locations within the Athabasca water system. The CBM team are also the Nation's guardians. They patrol our land and report back to leadership.

 

TLRUMP is designed to help the nation protect and assist in the continuation of exercising our constitutionally protected rights, specific to ACFN. This can include providing information on the amount of land needed to have healthy harvesting areas, land for spiritual practices, and quantity of resources (fish, water, wildlife, plants, etc.) that is needed to sustain our nations culture.
