By Any Means Necessary

By Any Means Necessary Movie Poster

When a group of traditional Dene hunters were arrested in 1994 while hunting close to a military base, they were taken to court. While the Dene Peoples where sure that their claim was secured by the 100 year-old Treaty #10, the government’s interpretation of the treaty was that they had given up their rights for the use of this land.

The Elders from Buffalo River and their legal team are preparing a lawsuit to be heard in the Hague in 2007 that will consist of four central elements: the loss of Treaty rights, the loss of traditional territory, the loss of natural resources, and genocide.
