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.

When we were there it was the end of Cultural Days and there was lots of things going on. The building is amazing and has displays of the culture. We were lucky because they had a free BBQ that day and the food was great.

This is not a building filled with exhibits so don't go expecting to see a lot of First Nation's art or historical exhibitions. When we visited, there was a meeting concerning the Alaskan Fisheries being held in a private meeting room and the ball room...More

I lectured in one of this building's mulitpurpose rooms and spent all my breaks wandering the halls and looking at the art. I never tired of it. Some of it was hugely emotional and some simply beautiful. Really enjoyed being there, felt enriched by the...More

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.

This is a really beautiful building -- seeing the architecture is worth the visit. There are some really spectacular pieces of First Nations artwork also. We watched an interesting video on building a dug-out canoe. We didn't have the opportunity to catch a guided tour...More
