Declaration of Rights

We the Dene of the Dehcho have lived on our homeland according to our
own laws and system of government since time immemorial.

Our homeland is comprised of the ancestral territories and waters of the
Dehcho Dene. We were put here by the Creator as keepers of our waters and
lands.

The Peace Treaties of 1899 and 1921 with the non-Dene recognize the
inherent political rights and powers of the Dehcho First Nation. Only
sovereign peoples can make treaties with each other. Therefore our
aboriginal rights and titles and oral treaties cannot be extinguished by any
Euro-Canadian government.

Our laws from the Creator do not allow us to cede, release, surrender or
extinguish our inherent rights. The leadership of the Dehcho upholds the
teachings of the Elders as the guiding principles of Dene government now
and in the future.

Today we reaffirm, assert and exercise our inherent rights and powers to
govern ourselves as a nation.

We the Dene of the Dehcho stand firm behind our First Nation government.



Declaration was adopted at Kakisa, Denenat Kakisa, Denendeh, on August 19, 1993
