Dechinta believes in supporting self-determining and sustainable Northern communities rooted in Indigenous knowledge and values. We imagine a future of cultural revitalization through a reconnection with the land.
Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning is a community-led educational experience established in Denendeh and delivered across the land. We deliver Indigenous centred arts, culture, language and educational programming in an innovative land-based environment. We support diverse needs and inclusive participation.
Dechinta delivers land-based programming including arts intensives, university accredited post-secondary programming, and non-credited intensives for professionals and researchers working with Indigenous communities. All courses are led by Indigenous experts, professors, artists and knowledge keepers, rooted in Indigenous knowledge, practices, philosophies and ethics.
