Mapping the Way

Mapping the Way is an initiative that celebrates and raises awareness about Yukon First Nation land claims and self-government.

This initiative is a partnership between the Government of Canada, the Government of Yukon, the Council of Yukon First Nations and all 11 Self-Governing Yukon First Nations. These 14 parties work together to implement land claims and self-government in the territory.

Settling land claims and self-government agreements in Yukon involved decades of hard work, innovation and commitment by leaders and visionaries.

The exhibit, on loan to the Archives from Mapping the Way, shares some of the stories of the people and events that helped map the way to a new governance landscape for all Yukoners. Includes videos and podcasts. On display through January 12, 2019.
