Kaska Dena Council hand delivered a comprehensive land claim to the Kaska territory in BC to the Minister of Indian Affairs, John Munro.

During the 1970’s BC Hydro proposed to dam the Liard River north of the Liard Hot Springs. This is when the Kaska Dena in BC (Daylu Dena Council, Dease River First Nation, and Kwadacha First Nation) organized themselves through the Kaska Dena Council and in 1982 submitted to Canada a claim to Kaska Dena territory.
