    About Moosehide Gathering

    This year Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in are celebrating a number of special anniversaries: the 20th anniversary of signing our Land Claims and Self Government Agreements and the 45th anniversary of Together Today for our Children Tomorrow. In July 2018, we will honour these landmark events with a joyful gathering at our historic Moosehide Village on the banks of the Yukon River.

    Moosehide Gathering is an exceptional event that attracts both Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in families returning to their roots and visitors experiencing its charm for the first time. From July 26–29, 2018, we’re bringing together artists, performers, and people for a celebration of Hän culture and heritage. This year we’ll focus on dynamic northern Indigenous artists who capture the spirit of our pride and happiness. Fiddlers, drummers, singers, and instrumentalists from many genres and communities will send people out onto the dance floor while hands-on workshops and artists and crafters will keep you鸿运彩app在哪下载r fingers busy.

    The entire gathering is free and open to the public, including transportation by boat to the site and feasts in the evenings. All Yukoners, First Nation communities, and visitors are invited to participate.
