One Land. One People.

During the 1980s, BC Hydro proposed to dam the Liard River north of the Liard Hot Springs. This is when the Kaska Dena in BC organized themselves through the Kaska Dena Council, and in 1982 submitted to Canada a claim to Kaska Dena Traditional Territory.

 

One Land. One People.

The Kaska Dena Council was formed as a Society in 1981 to advance interests of Kaska individuals who are beneficiaries of a potential treaty settlement with Canada and British Columbia. We are committed to promoting and protecting Kaska Dena's Indigenous Rights and Title.

 

One Land. One People.

Kaska have always said that we belong to one Nation. Borders not of our making divided us and so our homeland now lies in British Columbia, Yukon, and NWT. We have been divided into five Indian Act Bands: two in Yukon and three in BC.
