Tłı̨chǫ Research and Training Institute (TRTI)

Under the direction of the Chiefs Executive Council of the Tłı̨chǫ Government, the mandate of the Dedats’eetsaa: Tłı̨chǫ Research and Training Institute (TRTI) is to advance the study of Tłı̨chǫ lands, language, culture and way of life. This will be done through the promotion of research, and its use for training, education and monitoring Government commitments and responsibilities, within a Tłı̨chǫ cultural framework.
