Annual Research Expo and Museum Gathering

Traditional Knowledge, Health and Wellness, Historical Research, Language and Culture

In 2022 and 2023 DCLP research hosted two annual Tłı̨chǫ Research Expos which brought together Tłı̨chǫ Elders, Tłı̨chǫ youth and various researchers to share and celebrate an array of research from within the Tłı̨chǫ region. The number of outside research partners contributing to Tłı̨̨chǫ research is growing and wonderful to see!


These annual gatherings not only celebrate research but also foster collaboration, knowledge sharing, gathering feedback, verification and ways to improve research with, and for the Tłı̨chǫ people. Working with and hearing from knowledge holders gathered in one place has proven to be both influential and powerful. Personal life experiences contribute to the documentation of our shared history telling an important story of our past. A past rich with culture, language and traditions that we continuously strive to maintain. Having youth participate not just as observers but as researchers becoming involved and leading research important to them is amazing! Working with both our experienced knowledge holders and young educated Tłı̨chǫ researchers is the vision that Chief Jimmy Bruneau and Elizabeth Mackenzie had for our people.


Thank you to everyone who contributed and participated in this year’s Tłı̨chǫ Research Expo! Your passion and dedication to research makes these events so beautiful, inspiring, enjoyable, memorable and just all around remarkable!
