Carmacks, Yukon: A Northern Tutchone Homeland

Creator(s): Tagé Cho Hudän Interpretive Centre

The Northern Tutchone people have called the area around Carmacks, Yukon home for thousands of years. Before the arrival of Europeans, they governed their own lives and survived from the land by following Traditional Laws passed down for generations. The arrival of the K'uch'an (''Cloud People", i.e. white people) brought massive changes and terrible disempowerment. It is only in the modern era of land claims that Northern Tutchone have regained some control over their lives. This story is about self-governance that existed for generations, was taken away, and is now being restored through years of struggle.
