Join us in Fort Smith, NT for Keepers XI – Tu Beta Ts’ena (Water is Life) gathering to celebrate the river, secure our watershed, and imagine a healthy future. Hosted in partnership with Smith’s Landing First Nation and the Keepers of the Water. The purpose of this gathering is to bring people together in celebration of the Slave River (and larger Mackenzie Basin), understand threats and opportunities to the water, and provide low-barrier solutions for participants and residents to take action to protect, secure, and restore the watershed. We will include Traditional Knowledge Holders in all aspects of the Gathering to honour local Indigenous groups and foster an atmosphere of reconciliation and healing between people and the land. Registration is FREE, make a donation if you can.
