Dań Kwanje 'Á-Nààn: Voices Across the Water

Celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation with the Traditional Watercraft Project in Whitehorse! 

The Yukon First Nations Culture and Tourism Association invites you to participate in The Traditional Watercraft of Canada’s North project on the Whitehorse waterfront at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre during June 2017. Indigenous boat builders will construct four traditional watercraft including a birch bark canoe, a spruce dugout canoe, a seal skin qayaq, and a moose skin boat.

Come by our tent and watch the boats take shape day by day. We’ll have presentations, workshops, and traditional activities throughout the entire month! 

The boats will be launched with a special celebration at the beginning of July, during the Adäka Cultural Festival. Don’t miss this extraordinary event!
