Here is a link to the Dokis Land Management website. There we describe what a land management code is, why we as a First Nation are pursuing such a progressive goal, the benefits of successfully implementing our own land management code and also our voting dates. We also discuss the history of the Framework Agreement on First Nation's Land Management, the participating First Nations and how it is an important first step towards the larger goal of First Nation self-governance.
