Together, we thrive on the Traditional Territories of 14 Yukon First Nations.
At YukonU, we honour and respect the cultures, languages, heritage, Traditional Knowledge and worldviews of Yukon First Nations by proudly walking alongside them on their paths to self-determination and cultural revitalization.
In our commitment to decolonizing education, we infuse our programming, research, services and student life with Indigenous Traditional Knowledge, perspectives, and ways of knowing, being and doing.
