Gwich'in Council International participated in the 2018 Gwich'in Gathering in Tsiigehtchic, NWT. GCI gave a presentation to update delegates on our activities, as well as to seek their input.

At the Gathering, GCI distributed a Questionnaire to participants as part of a project to determine research priorities for Gwich'in. If you are interested in filling out the questionnaire, it is available here: PDF icon GCI_Gwichin Research Priorities Questionnaire.pdf. Please submit to gciadmin@gwichin.nt.ca by October 1, 2018.
