Description

Our Trails Bring Us Together (English) / Haa deiyí wóoshxh haa ła.ât (Coastal Tlingit) /Łä̀chʼi tän kwaäga dūjal du (Southern Tutchone) / Nehtän anāy lazh’i dūnyana yē nǟts’eddhat (Northern Tutchone) / Dahtene yèh shī̀dèł (Tagish) / Nitąy łits’ą̈̀’ në̀näjèl (Hän) / Nos chemins nous rassemblent (French)

This multi-disciplinary conference commemorates the 150th anniversary of the drawing of the Kohklux Maps by Chilkat Tlingit chief Kohklux and his people at Klukwan, Alaska for American scientist George Davidson. These are the oldest surviving maps of south-east Alaska and southern Yukon, and the oldest known maps drawn by Indigenous people in this part of the world. 11 years later, Hän river pilot Paul Kandik drew the Kandik Map for French Canadian fur trader François Mercier, documenting the region around the Yukon, Tanana, and upper Kuskokwim rivers.

Using these maps as a starting point, join us to explore themes such as trade alliances, astronomy, Indigenous languages and place names, mapmaking, travel and journey experiences, and more. A complete program and more information can be found on our website here.

Please note that you can select payment by cheque or by invoice upon checkout. For single day registrations, you will be asked to specify which day you plan to attend upon checkout. Besides access to all programming, registration fees include meals and refreshments during conference hours (tea and coffee throughout; catered lunches on Friday and Saturday; morning and afternoon catered breaks).

Funding for this project is made possible with support from Government of Yukon’s Community Development Fund.
