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.

Beautiful building, filled with wonderful First Nation art and artifacts. What really made the experience spectacular was our tour guides, who told their personal stories as part of the tour. Highly recommended.

Beautiful facility, with some very interesting history and artifacts. Loved the canoe in the lobby and the history of how and when it was built.
