Resolution No. 2009-06 - Passed by Consensus

Peel Watershed

Whereas;  The Peel watershed provides important wintering habitat for the Porcupine 
		Caribou herd, which is a vital resource for the survival of the traditional Vuntut 
		Gwitchin lifestyle;       

Whereas;  The Tetlit Gwich'in, Trondek Hwechin, Nacho Nyak Dun and other groups are 
		strongly pushing for greater conservation of lands and resources in the Peel 
		Watershed that are equally important to them as the caribou are to us and these 
		groups need our support in their cause.

Therefore Be It Resolved;	

That the Vuntut Gwitchin leadership show solidarity by supporting the efforts of other 
First Nations, thereby helping them protect their resources while, most importantly, 
ensuring the protection of our own.
