Voices of Vision: Yukon Aboriginal Self-Government Podcast Series

Local Organization, Project

Provided By: Mapping the Way

The Yukon is a land of trailblazers in Aboriginal self-government. Since 1995, 11 of Yukon's 14 First Nations have become self-governing, and account for more than half of the national total of self-governing First Nations. 

In this podcast series, Voices of Vision: Yukon Aboriginal Self-Government, some of the key people who have been involved in the continuing journey of self-government and implementation share their stories in their own words.

The podcast series, Voices of Vision: Yukon Aboriginal Self-Government, was created in partnership with the Council of Yukon First Nations, the Government of Yukon, the Government of Canada and Self-Governing Yukon First Nations.

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.

In 2016, the Training Policy Committee contracted a literature review of indigenous nation rebuilding, which took a comprehensive look at what has been written about the process of rebuilding nations, including the essential training areas, and what are the best training models and approaches for Yukon First Nations to adapt and use.
