The Kaska Dena Council General Assembly is hosted each year by either Daylu Dena Council, Dease River First Nation, or Kwadacha Nation in their community on a rotational basis. The General Assembly is a time for Kaska Dena Council to report out to its members with respect to important initiatives and news, time to connect with family and friends, celebration of our culture, and enjoying fun activities together.
KDC General Assembly – 2021
At the March 3, 2021 Board of Directors meeting, the KDC Board approved the date of July 6–8, 2021 for a KDC General Assembly. As vaccine roll-out continues in the province of BC, we remain hopeful that by summer there will be a relaxing of health orders and directives and that we will once again be able to gather together safely. The General Assembly is to be hosted by Dease River First Nation this year, and the planned site of the General Assembly is Rapid River.
The General Assembly is an important time for Kaska. It is a time for us to report out on all the initiatives and successes of the past year, to hear from you and receive your feedback and ideas, as well as a time to connect with families, celebrate our culture and heritage, enjoy spending time on the land together, eating traditional foods, and sharing good times together.
We expect to know closer to the date what the health orders are and decide by the end of May if a face-to-face General Assembly can take place and how, updated notice will be posted. So, mark your calendars for a KDC General Assembly July 6–8, 2021, and as summer approaches we will confirm whether we can hold an in-person gathering at Rapid River, a virtual General Assembly, or a combination of the two.
