The Ełèts’ehdèe is Hotıì ts'eeda's annual gathering. The event is a space for partners, community members and researchers to meet and connect, learn about our organization and share information about health research in the NT. The Ełèts’ehdèe includes plenary panels on health and health research topics, storytelling and sharing about ongoing projects, cultural activities, and space for connecting across disciplines and regions.
The 2019 Ełèts’ehdèe will be held May 22-24, 2019 at Aurora Village in Yellowknife, on traditional territory of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation. The theme of the event is "Building on Our Strengths."
While the Ełèts’ehdèe is invitation-only due to capacity, this year we will be hosting a public event at NACC in Yellowknife on May 22nd, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The event will feature Donna May Kimmliardjuk, Canada's first Inuk heart surgeon, Marie Wilson, Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, John B. Zoe, Tłı̨chǫ education and health advocate and Chair of our Governing Council, and Jennie Vandermeer, founder of EverrrSexy. Register for a free ticket here.
