July 28th, 2021, will mark the 100th year anniversary since the signing of Treaty 11. The signing of Treaty 11 is a monumental moment for the community of Tetlit Zheh. The Teetl’it Gwich’in Band Council is planning a 100th Year Celebration to commemorate this important part of our history during the summer of 2021.
In order to make this celebration a success, we need more volunteers to help us with planning and fundraising. The staff along with the Chief, have been putting together ideas and asking for more input from the public. Our Band Administrator Trina is applying for funds to help us carry out activities, but fundraising will need to be carried out to help us with all the extra activities that are not covered by the funding. We would like to renovate the cabin of the late Chief Julius Salu and have a monument erected within the community, along with holding events over the summer months. The more people that help, the more successful the events can be. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our office at (867)952-2006.
