There are first nations to the north. The Fond du Lac First Nation, the Black Lake Dene Nation, and Hatchet Lake Dene Nation are involved with the Athabaska land-use plan. But it's still in the working stages; nothing has been really.... To my knowledge, they've had their.... They did the process a little differently from the Missinipi land-use plan.
In our process there was a land-use plan provided for us from government. With them, I'm not sure, but I think they were on their own. They did their own land-use plan, which to me is a better process, because you're looking at your maps, you're really educating your members, putting them to work. Maybe, as an example, you can utilize summer students who are going to school in the area of natural resources. I think that's a better process than being provided a land-use planner and having them do all the work, such as the GIS work, within their department.
I'm also a little familiar with other land-use plans in the other provinces. An example is the Whitefeather Forest initiative in the Pikangikum area in northern Ontario. I had a look at their land-use plan, and I was totally impressed and amazed at the work they did with their land-use plan, using, of course, the pictures and using their own language and their own syllabic system right in the land-use plan, so their elders can understand it. It was a good process.
