Yellowknives Dene blast GNWT, say their support of Slave Geological road obtained under ‘false pretenses’

The Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) has pulled its support for one of the GNWT’s largest infrastructure projects.

In a sharply written letter, signed by both Ndilo Chief Ernest Betsina and Dettah Chief Ed Sangris, the First Nation leaders stated that the Government of the Northwest Territories has not worked collaboratively as had been understood over the past year to ensure local Indigenous and northern businesses benefit from the project.

The letter declaring that the YKDFN would no longer support the Slave Geological Province access project was shared with news outlets Friday afternoon.
