Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by John Dantouze, Prince Albert Tribal Council. Dantouze presents on behalf of Saskatchewan's three Denesuline nations with regard to their Treaties (Number Eight and Number Ten) and their court case against the federal government. The case centred around the negotiations between the government and the Inuit to create Nunavut, and the Dene argued that their traditional territories were being unfairly partitioned and given away to the new territory. Following the presentation a discussion takes place between Commissioners Erasmus and Chartrand over the government's position and what the Royal Commission can do to address the dispute.
