The Fort Liard Ethnographic project was undertaken at Fort Liard, NWT during the summer of 1967. It was sponsored by the Riveredge Foundation of Calgary, Alberta, in conjunction with the Fort Liard Archaeological Project. The principal investigators were Dr. A. Heirich and M. Gadar of the University of Calgary. They recorded information on the language, vocabulary, kinship, mythology, and religion of the Athapascan (Dene) people of Fort Liard, and purchased artifacts for the Riveredge Foundation collection.
