Dene Sign Accord With American Navajo

Monday, July 25, 2005 at 14:54



The relationship between Canada’s Dene people and the American Navajo tribe is being formalized today in Calgary.


It is a common belief between the two groups that they share common ancestors.


At an international gathering in Calgary today, an agreement will be signed to solidify that bond.


Fond du Lac First Nation chief Allan Adam has been part of the group that’s been working on the terms of the agreement.


Adam says it not only encourages both groups to work together to promote their customs and culture, it also has the potential of having some political benefit in terms of influencing various levels of government in both countries.
