Hello Ed and welcome to the Permaculture list:

What are your needs and goals that you hope to accomplish using 
permaculture principles and methods?

Gardening and farming:  it would be interesting to hear about growing 
conditions, climate and soil types there; also,
integration, diversity and stacked functions in agricultural systems you 
might develop.

Can you integrate aquaculture and fishing int your plan; if you are 
already doing this, can you describe it?

Athapascan is a name I have heard all my life but never knew what it 
refered to so I Googled it and found this:

*There were 12 First Nation/Inuit Linguistic Families in Canada prior to 
the arrival of European explorers: Algonquin, Iroquoian, Inuktitut,
Athapascan, Siouan, Kutenaian, Salishan, Wakashan, Tsimshian, Haidan, 
Tlingit and Beothuk.
The ATHAPASCAN home area was northern Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, 
BC and most of the Yukon and the Southwest Northwest Territories.
The Athapasca Nations from BC and the Prairie Provinces were the 
Chippewa, Beavers, Sacree, Slave, and Dene Nations. In the Northwest 
and Yukon are the Dogrib, Kutchin, Kaska, Tutchone, Han and Hare."
