Event Details

Drin Hǫzǫ. Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Citizens and staff members are invited to join a number of field excursions as part the International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP). This global event on Permafrost will bring more than 500 people to the Yukon to discuss issues, experiences and research on permafrost. Our field excursions will visit sites on Traditional Territory in/and around Dawson between June 12-16.

As part of the teachings, we want to build on the meaningful contributions of Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and would love for Citizens to share their traditional knowledge and experiences with our excursion participants. We will be visiting  sites including Moosehide Slide, Tr’ochëk and as well as other important sites of cultural significance in your Traditional Territory, such as the Klondike Goldfields, Chapman Lake, the Tombstone region of the southern Dempster Highway.
