New NWT Park Will be a Gift to Our Descendants reported on May 16, 2013:  Now there is a movement to preserve a massive parcel of land on the east arm of Great Slave Lake as our country’s newest – and potentially unique – national park. Negotiations between Parks Canada and the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation aim to establish a sprawling area of more than 33,000 square kilometres as the Thaidene Nene National Park. The words (pronounced thigh-denay nenay) translate from the Chipewyan language as “land of our ancestors”.
