Understanding the Yukon Final Agreements - Heritage & Culture
Local Organization, Project
Provided By: Mapping the Way
Chapter 13 of the Final Agreements is all about Heritage, which includes the designation and protection of historic sites.
The sites are locations that have shaped a way of life for Yukon First Nations and throughout Yukon’s history. They are the places that were used for fishing or hunting, where villages and gathering places stood, or were strategic locations for trading and other activities. Many of these sites are landmarks within Yukon communities and are connected with remarkable people or events in our history.
This resource shares case studies and stories of historic sites that have been designated through the Agreements and shares easy-to-understand information about what the Agreements are and how they impact the daily and future life of the Yukon.
