Go to the cave. At the time, at the time of legend, this place was a medical place for beaver lodges. When it opened, two people came in, a man and a Chipewyan woman. The cave closed behind them and turned into a large… The signing of the agreement launched the process of ratification of the Igero agreement. On Thursday, August 4, 2005, the Tlicho Agreement came into force, “the first official day of the Tlicho government and the municipal governments of Tlicho” (date of 2005). On August 25, 2003, they signed a land agreement, also known as the Government of Canada, with the Government of Canada. The agreement will cede an area of 39,000 square kilometers between the Great Bear Lake and the Great Slave Lake in the NWT property. The area includes the municipalities Behchokǫ̀, Gaméti, Wekweeti and Whata, as well as the Diavik diamond mine and the Ekati diamond mine. The four groups of The Four Groups, Dog Rib Rae First Nation, Wha Ti First Nation, Gameti First Nation and Dechi Laot`i First Nations, as well as their Councillor Dogrib Treaty 11, stopped on 4 August 2005 and were replaced by the Tlicho government. Not all members of the municipalities of Dene and T-ch`, have accepted or signed these contracts.
In the fall of 1992, the T-ch`s submitted their own regional claims to the Canadian government. Negotiations between the Yellowknife Band B (Contract 8 Dogrib) and the Dog Rib Rae Band (Contract 11 Dogrib) were scheduled to begin in 1994, but the Yellowknife B Band refused to enter into negotiations. This has complicated the situation, as both groups have overlapping land borders. Self-management seemed to be the problem between the two groups, as they both wanted to have a say in the agreement. This ended the negotiations in 1994, when the Canadian government looked at borders and self-management. A new mandate, in April 1997, allowed the negotiation of a “common land law and an autonomy agreement with the Treaty Dogrib 11 Council” (Contract 11 Dogrib). In 1999, the agreement in principle for dogrib approval was adopted on 7 January 2000.
