Carmacks, Yukon: A Northern Tutchone Homeland
Tagé Cho Hudän Interpretive Centre
Carmacks , Yukon Territory


   The Northern Tutchone
people have called the area
around Carmacks, Yukon home
for thousands of years.
Before the arrival of
Europeans, they governed
their own lives and survived
from the land by following
Traditional Laws passed down
for generations. The arrival

of the K'uch'an ("Cloud
People", i.e. white people)
brought massive changes and
terrible disempowerment. It
is only in the modern era of
land claims that Northern
Tutchone have regained
control of their lives. This
story is about self-
governance that existed for

generations, was taken away,
and is now being restored
through years of stuggle.
   The exhibit is presented
in three historical sections:
Hudé Hudän - "Long Ago
People", K'uch'an Adäw -
"Arrival of Cloud People",
and Akan Dzenu - "Life
Today". Each section explores

the events of these periods
and the impacts they had on
Northern Tuchone lives.
