This forum aims to create a space for First Nation communities within the Lesser Slave Lake Region and Alberta to post questions about research issues or the TARR program and archives. While we encourage community members to help answer question and provide input where applicable, we would like to remind all participants to be respectful of the purpose and intention of the forum. Please note that all questions are approved prior to posting in the forum.
