Land use planning is about thinking for the future. It does not dictate how the future will unfold, but instead is a tool for planning for the unknown. The Tłįchǫ Government has prepared the Tłįchǫ Land Use Plan to assist in managing approximately 39,000 km2 of Tłįchǫ lands. The Tłįchǫ Land Use Plan uses maps, policies and written information to manage Tłįchǫ lands, with the goal of protecting Tłįchǫ culture, heritage and a traditional way of life. The Plan provides a guide for future development by outlining how Tłįchǫ land will be protected and how activities and development on Tłįchǫ lands should occur.

Published under the authority of the Tłįchǫ Government, Behchokǫ,  NT, Canada, 2012.

The West Kitikmeot Slave Study Society was set up in 1995 to collect environmental and socioeconomic information from the perspective of both science and Aboriginal traditional knowledge. The overall purpose was to gather information to better inform planning decisions and to contribute baseline data to assess and mitigate cumulative effects of development.

The decision to conduct this research came from the elders and the leadership through the Dogrib Renewable Resources Committee2. They wanted to ensure that Tłįchǫ knowledge of ɂekwǫ 3 and their habitat was documented; to provide baseline information, to contribute to monitoring and management initiatives related to caribou and their habitat.
