Seven photocopied newspaper articles relating to the Dene Declaration passed in 1975. Article subjects include a draft of the Dene Declaration, the Dene Manifesto, and a statement from Chief Frank T'seleie of Fort Good Hope, NWT.
Historical note:Comprehensive claims negotiations began with the written assurance of the prime minister of Canada that negotiations were to be the modern fulfillment of Treaties 8 and 11. Dene and Métis people first began negotiating a single claim in 1974, following a joint assembly of Dene and Métis at Fort Good Hope, NWT. The following year, at the second joint general assembly in Fort Simpson, the Indian Brotherhood of the NWT (now Dene Nation) and the Métis Association of the NWT (now the Metis Nation of the NWT) passed the Dene Declaration.
