Gonèk’e (Gone-eh’-kay) (Translation: Our Land). 

Modern treaties are difficult to negotiate, and just as challenging to implement.  The Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project is hosting a webinar series over the next six months called “Gonèk’e: Our Land” highlighting research and providing a platform for Indigenous experts and practitioners to highlight their work and knowledge in modern treaty implementation.

Join us June 28, 2021, at 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MST for the first in a series of five webinars in 2021 exploring the themes behind the Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project.
