Overview

Situated on the banks of the Yukon River, the Cultural Centre is a place where we celebrate the heritage and contemporary way of life of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation people. It is also a gathering place for people of all cultures. The vision of the Cultural Centre is to revive, preserve, and demonstrate our language, practices, values and traditional way of life for the benefit of Kwanlin Dun people. We also want to share our culture with other First Nations and people from around the world.

A fantastic Christmas market. The variety of goods available was amazing. The number of artisans displaying their wares is surprising. It was great to be able to buy Christmas gifts that are "one-of-a-kind", compared to what you would normally buy. We traveled to Whitehorse earlier...More

This place appears to be a location to assist First Nations peoples. Directly opposite the entrance there were many people who seemed to be working on projects. It looked like a large classroom. In fact most of the building seemed to be related to education....More

Was there for dinner reception and show which was OK but not spectacular. Did not visit museum or other parts of facility.

This was our second visit to this center. The first time was 3 years ago when they were having a cultural event that included many artisans. This time it was quieter and we were able to see the wall displays and spend time reading about...More

The Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre hosts a great collection of local first nations art, conventions and an impressive waterfront - but its crown jewel is the library. I didn't always think so - my first experience was rather negative but over the last two years...More

I was there when the centre opened and have returned every year. It is interesting and educational for those who want to learn more about the first nation history. Well laid out and an awesome place to have a wedding or other festivities.

I must confess I know little about First Nation people and feel quite disconnected from them - but I am from the UK. Visit this centre, however, and you'll learn masses. Our guide was Ashley, who was an Inuit, and she was charming, informative and...More

The healing canoe is magnificent. There's a very interesting video about how and why it was made - from a single log. So much thought went into creating this wonderful place. It is definitely worth visiting and I recommend asking lots of questions. The staff...More

Confusing, as this center reminded us of an administrative building as compared to a true cultural center - a meeting hall for natives. The receptionist wasn't very helpful, but did steer up to the outside tents where they were building a canoe - cultural days...More
