Cultural Practices

The Cultural Practices section of the Department of Culture and Lands Protection provides opportunities for Tłįchǫ youth and other citizens to practice our language, culture and way of life through organized activities on the land and in our communities.

We support and organize:

  • harvesting activities such as hunting, trapping and fishing;
  • traditional recreation and celebrations such as drumming, dancing and hand games;
  • the creation and construction of traditional articles of clothing, artifacts and artwork;
  • travel across the land with elders and youth such as Trails of our Ancestors and Embe, as well as opportunities for language and cultural learning with elders.
