Dene Nahjo and the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) – NWT Region are proud to present a FREE event: ‘We Are One Mind – Perspectives from Emerging Indigenous Leaders on the Arctic Policy Framework.’
We Are One Mind addresses a way forward for Canada’s Arctic Policy Framework by stating:
- Northern people and its communities need to be at the heart of any new framework;
- Social innovation, research and policy development must be led by northerners;
- Land, culture, arts and language are vital for healthy communities and economies;
- Indigenous self-determination is required for a mutually beneficial relationship between the North and South.
It was developed by Dene Nahjo in partnership with Qanak in Nunavut and Our Voices in the Yukon, and with the support of the Gordon Foundation.
