The Vision

Dechinta believes in building dynamic, sustainable and self-determining Northern communities where human capacity is rooted in indigenous knowledge and values.

The Experience

The Dechinta experience is an educational experience like no other. Located off the grid in a remote eco-lodge in the taiga bush accessible only by bush plane, snowmobile or dog team, learning from the land while living in community is central to the Dechinta experience.

The Mission

Dechinta supports a new generation of leaders and researchers by providing accessible and practical learning and development experiences, respectful of traditional ways, in a taiga bush environment.
