The decision to conduct this research came from the elders and the leadership through the Dogrib Renewable Resources Committee. They wanted to ensure that Tłı̨chǫ knowledge of ɂekwǫ̀ and their habitat was documented; to provide baseline information, to contribute to monitoring and management initiatives related to caribou and their habitat.
