Today an agreement was signed between the Federal Government and the Dogrib Nation creating what is in effect a new political entity in Canada. The polity is called Tli Cho and gives the Dogrib Nation control over its culture, language and family law as well as the right to collect taxes and resource royalties.

"It will serve as a model for other indigenous communities in Canada and in other countries, a model for implementing self-government. The agreement defines the rights and shows the world how diversity creates strength and how partnership builds success."

Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien.
