Objective(s): To assess the nature of the subsistence practices of the Dene people of Fort Good Hope; to determine the long-term sustainability of traditional harvesting practices.

Project Description: The researcher will continue to conduct interviews with the elders and community members of Fort Good Hope in order to collect data to test assumptions about the long-term sustainability of existing Dene harvesting practices. Data will include resource distribution, land tenure and harvest patterns, genealogies and traditional knowledge. The researcher will continue to work closely with the community on this project.
