About Vuntut Gwitchin

We are a self governing First Nation based from the cradle of the Gwich’in Nation in Old Crow, Yukon. In the recent past our people lived exclusively on the land and our modern day lifestyle reflects our past. Our new government provides services for our people based on the teachings of our Elders. Our children are our most precious resource and it is for them that the educational materials featured on this site were developed. Our Elders participated in years of oral history research and they gave the specific direction to use their knowledge to educate the children and also the world about Vuntut Gwitchin culture and history.

Whether you are Vuntut Gwitchin, a student, researcher, teacher or visitor, please enjoy our site and contact us at the John Tizya Centre for further information.
