A Community Plan for Moosehide

This summer, Tr'ondëk Hwëch’in is developing a Community Plan for Moosehide village; to help Moosehide develop the way citizens want it to be, and find the best ways to improve the quality of life and facilities for all Tr'ondëk Hwëch’in and visitors.

Over the past few months we’ve sought input and feedback from citizens. 

This information was used to create six values that highlight the role Moosehide plays in citizens’ lives and best reflect its cultural importance. These value statements declare that Moosehide is:

  •  A physical, cultural and spiritual home
  • A place of physical and cultural protection
  • Where we live in a safe, healthy and traditional manner
  • A place for sharing,  learning and healing
  • Living close to nature
  • For future generations

The statements have been used to create a Vision Statement for Moosehide – which will guide all future decisions.

Are you excited to know about the vision for Moosehide? Would you like to have your say on community values? Do you want to shape Moosehide’s future? Then come out to the next public meeting to be held at the TH Community Hall on Wednesday, August 12 from 5:30 p.m.  There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and have your say.

Contact Lee Whalen at 993-7100 ext. 113 for information.
