The Lands & Resources Department involves several different components. The personnel
working within the department reports directly to the Director of Community Operations.
The following is a list of some of the projects that the Lands & Resources department has
been involved in.
Land Based Activities
Traditional Knowledge Study
A process in which Band members are consulted who have a knowledge of our traditional
land use cultural activities and way of life. We have a deep history within the Treaty #3
area. At the present time, the study is ongoing with traditional sites being mapped and any
stories that are related are being recorded.
Land Use Planning
At the present time a planning exercise is being undertaken to determine what we are
currently doing with our land space. This ties in with the historical Traditional Knowledge
study undertaken by the Lands and Resources team. We must know our own history in order to move forward. Once the knowledge of
the present is known; we can move into a future Land Use planning exercise. The future will
be where and what we are to do as a community, what we want to see happening with our land. What type of economic development is sustainable for the type of community we want to be.
There has been some research done into the history of the community along with the
people within this geographic area. Work in this area is ongoing.
