Nisga'a Nation to offer youth a unique opportunity to explore Treaty negotiation and implementation

Three days in August will offer the youth of the Nisga'a Nation a unique opportunity to learn more on the process of treaty negotiation, while building their skills to be the  leaders of tomorrow.

Working in a partnership with the Gordon Foundation, the Nisga'a Lisims government has created an online Treaty Negotiation and Implementation Simulation, the program which is available to Nisga'a Youth from 14-29 years of age will be taking place over a three day period from August 4 to 6 from 1 PM to 5 PM each day.

The simulation program which will take place through the Zoom platform, will offer participants some hands on learning; allowing those taking part to develop leadership skills and a create a network of youth and experts to tap into to learn more on the scope of the Nisga'a Treaty and how it is connected to members lives and their future.

Among some of the themes to be explored, modern treaty implementation and negotiation practices, issues and potential career paths. 

There is no cost to attend the event, but registration for Nisga'a members is required, with a deadline of July 31st to indicate your interest.

Some background on the project, including a pair of videos that dig a bit deeper into what is ahead, can be found here.
