Fish Camp 2022
Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning is excited to host our 3rd Fish Camp from March 12-18, 2022. We want to encourage folks to get out on the land, and learn the language, culture and history from our community experts in the Dettah, Ndilǫ, and Yellowknife area.
The Rainbow Coalition first hosted fish camp in winter of 2019, creating a space for safe access to cultural programming for 2SLGBTQIPA+ youth. Dechinta was first invited to collaborate in 2020, and Łiwe camp has grown over the years, becoming a space for the creation of new relationships, and partnerships. Each year we work to create more opportunities to be on the land, building relationships with individuals and organizations, learning from Dene Elders, and practicing Dene Laws on the territory of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation. While camp grows and changes, we remain committed to creating more spaces and opportunities for 2SLGBTQIPA+ youth to access programming, and working hard to ensure Łiwe camp safe space where we can all share what we have.
