Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta

Last updated: August 2016

Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta (Tsoo-den-ee-len Too-yuh-ta), or Ramparts River and Wetlands, is approximately 15,000km² of prime northern boreal forest.  It is a rich cultural area that lies west of the Mackenzie River and the community of Fort Good Hope.

Importance of Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta


Parents still take their children and grandchildren to the places in Ts’ude niline Tu’eyeta shown to them by their parents, and these young people learn the skills and stories of the older generations; the Candidate Protected Area has thus played a key role in the collective identity of the people of Fort Good Hope.

Next Steps

Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta Vision Statement

Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta is a beautiful and spiritual place where wildlife is abundant. It is a place where younger generations learn about their culture and history. It has provided for the people and supported the traditions and way of life of the K'asho Got'ine Dene and Métis. Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta is a place protected from the impacts and long term effects of industrial development; where wildlife and their habitats are healthy; where Dene and Métis can hunt, fish and trap and live on the land as they have for generations; where sacred places and burial sites are preserved. The Ts'ude niline Tu'eyeta National Wildlife Area will be managed to ensure the natural and cultural values of the area are protected and preserved for the benefit of future generations.
