The Dakota have a long standing relationship with the British Crown, dating back to wampum ceremonies in 1762.
Through accountable, transparent governance, economic development, stable land tenure management and partnerships, the WDFN has managed to attract over $100 million in capital investment in the community. In the coming years, development plans will continue for outside investment in our community for tourism, business, and resort residential development.
From generation to generation, WDFN has continued the Spirit of Alliance. As the WDFN moves forward, it continues to build partnerships as it reinforces its values and traditions of the past. Today, their many partnerships with various organizations and local, provincial, and federal governments are a testament to the lasting legacy of this Spirit of Alliance.
