Hunting rights

Grand chief of the Dene Nation cited for violating caribou hunting ban.

“We have the right to this food that we have always had for the last 30,000 years or so we have occupied this area,” he said. “The territorial government has moved up here in 1967 and we don’t believe they have the right or the authority to tell us not to hunt this animal.”

Erasmus says he didn’t set out to deliberately challenge the emergency measure. However, he did say he was legally counselled in advance how to conduct himself and what to say if wildlife officers attempted to seize the hunters’ meat.
