Activities and experiences

Saoyú-ʔehdacho National Historic Site


​Coming together on Great Bear Lake

Every summer, Délı̨nę residents gather in Saoyú Ɂehdacho NHS to practice traditional skills out on the land and share them with younger community members. It’s out here that the connections between the land, the water and the people are strongest.

The elders of Délı̨nę say that the protection of Saoyú and Ɂehdacho is a responsibility given to the Sahtúgot‘ı̨nę by their ancestors. It is through these places and the stories associated with them that the Elders pass on their knowledge: their history, values, laws, land use skills, land management practices and life-styles.
