Hosted by NWT MP Michael MacLeod, Dechinta students met with MPs and staff to discuss the importance of Indigenous education. Students spoke about the importance of land-based education, the TRC Calls to Action and UNDRIP. Staff discussed the importance of having alternative employment opportunities outside of resource extraction, and Elders talked about the importance of sharing their love of the land with future generations.
