In the summer of 2023, Reel Youth worked with Youth from the Sahtu region on the Decho (Mackenzie River), north of Fort Good Hope, NT to make a film about the importance of addressing local water issues as a community. The camp brought Youth, Elders, scientists, knowledge holders and community leaders together to learn from each other and was made possible by Global Water Futures, the Fort Good Hope Renewable Resources Council, the FGH Dene Band Youth On the Land Program, the Sahtu Renewable Resources Board and GNWT. The camp was organized by the K’ahsho Got’ine Foundation and Guardians, in partnership with the Western Arctic Youth Collective and Reel Youth.

The project’s participants, ranging from ages 15 to 92, and hailed from all five Sahtu Dene and Metis communities; Deline, Tulita, Norman Wells, Fort Good Hope and Colville Lake. The initiative took place at Nihts’iba Site, K’asho Got’ine Territory, situated on the Decho north of Fort Good Hope at the Arctic Circle.


In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
