Indigenous Self-Determination Institute

Yukon is recognized across Canada, and around the globe, as a leader in Indigenous self-government and land claim negotiations. The vision to create an Institute is a collaboration between Yukon’s 14 First Nations and Yukon College. The Indigenous Self-Determination Institute would meet two significant needs within the community, helping to address capacity challenges faces by Indigenous governments, and those working with them, and serving as a hub for research into modern treaties, topics related to self-determination and challenges Indigenous governments and communities face, such as water quality, energy and food security.

Modern education, rooted in tradition, offers unlimited opportunities for the future. With the support and commitment of all 14 Yukon First Nations, Yukon College and you, our donors, we are uniquely positioned to find solutions to challenges Indigenous communities face, to advise organizations working with Indigenous groups, to support today’s First Nations leaders and to prepare the leaders of tomorrow.
