“The Gwich’in have traditionally used and occupied lands in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon from time immemorial. In July 1921, Chiefs and headmen representing the Loucheux (as we were then called) of Arctic Red River (now Tsiigehtchic) and Fort McPherson (also known as Teetl’it Zheh) signed Treaty 11 with King George V (the Crown), creating a special nation-to-nation relationship.”
