Learn more about Yukon’s Journey to First Nation Self-Government

Since 1995, 11 of Yukon’s First Nations have become self-governing, and account for more than half of self-governing First Nations in Canada.  The Mapping the Way campaign celebrates and raises awareness about Yukon First Nation land claims and self-government.

The Implementation Working Group has launched a new online resource that tells the story of Yukon’s Journey to First Nations Self-Government Agreements through video, audio and photos.


 Dave Joe, Elijah Smith, Frankie Jim and Kathy Birckel

Some of the key people who helped negotiate our agreements share their stories in their own words, including CAFN Citizen Dave Joe.
