Yukon/Stikine Regional Heritage Fair
Yukon First Nations
First Nations people in the Yukon. My project is about the history and culture of the Yukon First Nations. I am from Old Crow. My culture is a traditional culture.
What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?
Some of my classmates didn't know that I can speak Gwich'in. Some other people don't know about the Wolf Clan and the Crow Clan. I learned how to make a movie about my project.
What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?
First Nations People in the Yukon can still live a traditional life, if they want to. I belong to the Crow Clan. The Yukon is beautiful.
How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?
It is different. I can fly to Whitehorse from Old Crow. It is fast to get places. I eat a lot of the same things as my people a long time ago, but I eat candy and other things too.
