Tłı̨chǫ are a united people and believe in collective responsibility. Tłı̨chǫ unity is based on preserving, protecting and promoting the Tłı̨chǫ language culture and way of life. Consensus decision-making process is the Traditional Tłı̨chǫ governance system and the Tłįchǫ Government shall abide by this tradition. All Tłı̨chǫ leaders are role models and leaders must act in the most respectful manner. Tłı̨chǫ leaders shall follow the principles of the Tłı̨chǫ Constitution, Tłı̨chǫ Agreement and Tłı̨chǫ Laws.
The Constitution protects the rights of Tłı̨chǫ Citizens, including protecting Tłı̨chǫ Citizens from any wrongful actions of the Tłı̨chǫ Government. The Constitution sets out the structure of the Tłı̨chǫ Government. It describes the main roles and responsibilities of officials, and it sets the rules for elections. The Constitution also provides the rules for the Annual Gathering. The Constitution makes the Tłı̨chǫ Government (including the companies and boards it sets up) accountable for its decisions about money and for managing Tłı̨chǫ resources properly.
The Tłı̨chǫ Land Claims and Self-Government Agreement was signed on August 25 2003, exactly 82 years after Treaty 11 was signed by Chief Monfwi in 1921. The Agreement was signed by representatives of the Dogrib Treaty 11 Council, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) and the Government of Canada. The Tłı̨chǫ Agreement is the first combined land claim and self-government agreement in the Northwest Territories.
This Agreement between Canada, the Northwest Territories and the Tłı̨chǫ created the Tłı̨chǫ Community Services Agency, successor to the Dogrib Community Services Board. The Agency provides Education, Health and Social Services to the people of the Tłı̨chǫ, and is controlled by the Tłı̨chǫ. The inclusion of culture and language in the operation of these services is also covered. Services include those normally supplied by the Government of the Northwest Territories, as well as certain services provided by the Government of Canada, and education, health and social services developed by the Tłı̨chǫ Government.
The Financing Agreement provides the money to run the Tłı̨chǫ Government. It also includes money for one-time costs like building facilities, buying computers and preparing new laws. . Every five years, the Financing Agreement will be reviewed to make sure activities are funded properly. In the future, if the Tłı̨chǫ Government earns enough money from its own revenue sources, it will reduce the amount needed to be transferred under the Financing Agreement. In this way, the Tłı̨chǫ Government will gradually become self-sufficient.
The implementation plan is an agreement among the Tłı̨chǫ Government, Canada and the GNWT to make sure all the promises and commitments made in the Tłı̨chǫ.
