Yukon First Nations Heritage Group
2018 Governors' Award
Earlier this year, the Yukon First Nations Heritage Group released the 2018 Guide to Heritage Stewardship for Yukon First Nation Governments. Developed between 2014 and 2018, the stewardship guide includes input, participation and verification by Yukon First Nations Heritage representatives, including Carcross/Tagish First Nation, Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, First Nation of Na Cho Nyäk Dun, Kluane First Nation, Little Salmon/Carmacks First Nation, Selkirk First Nation, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, Teslin Tlingit Council, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and Vuntut Gwitchin Government.
It was recognized that sharing stories, information and expertise gathered over the years would enrich this unique and integral field. The Stewardship Guide is meant to be a living document that can be changed and added to as the First Nations Heritage stewardship field develops and grows.
