Abstract:
In 1983 Dorothy MacDonald, chief of the small Fort McKay First Nation, which sits in the middle of the world's richest oilsands deposits, decided to take on the trucks roaring through her community night and day loaded with lumber for construction sites.

Traditional land use setting report for the Suncor Voyageur South Project


Author(s): Goodjohn, M.

Year: 2007

Abstract:
This traditional land use setting report compliments and extends information collected for the Suncor Steepbank Mine Project, Millennium Project, South Tailings Project and the Voyageur project. Senior and, in some cases, junior trapline holders of RFMA #s 578, 2156, 1790, 2676 were interviewed for the report. Aboriginal participants include members of Fort McKay First Nation and Métis. The report focuses on historic and current traditional land use within the Voyageur South Project Area. Suncor also provided a week long camp-over program where traditionally used plant species were documented by members of Fort McKay First Nation. At the time that this Traditional Land Use Setting Report was released, the report for the camping trip was still being written by Fort McKay First Nation. Likewise, Mikisew Cree First Nation were still in the process of completing their traditional land use study at the time of writing.
