A week in the Dene community of Lutsel K’e living in their traditional way.

As the governments of Canada and NWT work to establish a combined national and territorial park on the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, a group of residents from Wakefield, Quebec, embark on the first leg of a cultural exchange with the Lutsel K’e community. The Wakefield community is hoping to provide support to these future park stewards, as well as create an ongoing relationship between the two communities. The following is a blog post from Heidi Honegger, one of the 15 Wakefield residents on the cultural exchange.
