Modern Treaties Forum & Honouring Leadership Gala Dinner & Awards

Nov 14

Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre - Whitehorse, YT

The AFN Yukon Region is hosting a forum Modern Treaties Forum inviting First Nations across Canada who have negotiated and achieved modern treaties with the Crown and those First Nations who seek to achieve modern treaties through land claims and self-government agreements with the Crown. Our efforts seek to bring together First Nations to exchange their experiences, perspectives and recommendations with an interest to learn from each other and to advance First Nation rights and interests with the Crown.

On the evening of Thursday November 14, 2019 we invite you to attend an evening Gala to recognize, honour, and acknowledge the incredible work of the former AFN Yukon Regional Chiefs and the former AFN National Chiefs at the AFN Yukon ‘Honouring our Leaders’ Gala and Awards Celebration and the unveiling of inaugural AFN Yukon Leadership Awards. To close our evening, we are pleased to share the Yukon’s signature First Nations and Youth performers including special guest appearance by Mi’kmaq Youth Emma Stephens.
