Shalak naii,

We would like to invite you to our biennial Gwich’in Gathering in Fort McPherson, NWT, Canada July 23-27.  Since 1988 the people of the Gwich’in Nation have gathered in solidarity as a people to protect the Sacred Place Where Life Begins, Iizhik Gwats’an Gwandaii Goodlit, the calving and nursery grounds of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  We will also be discussing a wide range of issues related to culture, the border, climate and international concerns. We hope to create some worthwhile solutions.

The Tetilit Gwitch’in Council is hosting the event.  This will be a time to meet new people and visit with friends and relatives, enjoy traditional foods, music and dancing.  Please keep in mind those traveling from the U.S. will need a U.S. Passport.


Please fax the form to (867) 952-2212 or email
