Whitehorse, capital of the Yukon, is home to spectacular scenery, talented artists, and locally made products! It is a vibrant community situated along the Yukon River on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Tä’an Kwach’än Council.

Before you arrive, meet the 14 First Nations of the Yukon, each of which has its own special place and voice. Connect with them and feel the pulse of the land upon arrival. We also encourage you to visit the Council of Yukon First Nations, whose mandate is to serve as a political advocacy organization for Yukon First Nations holding traditional territories, protecting their rights, titles, and interests.
