Old Crow Experiential - Culture Camp
Resources were developed with input and guidance from Vuntut Gwitchin members, Elders and resource workers in Old Crow, Yukon, Canada. The resources and lessons are specific and relevant to the traditional and cultural activities of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation people. It is recommended that organizations and individuals interested in using these materials reflect on their community and youth needs, and create their own materials for their own community's traditions and culture under the guidance of Elders, community members and resource workers.
Youth Blanket Exercise
In 1996, the Aboriginal Rights Coalition worked with Indigenous elders and teachers to develop an interactive way of learning the history most Canadians are never taught. The Blanket Exercise was the result; it has since been offered thousands of times and the fourth edition was released in 2016. These documents have been adapted to incorporate relevant Yukon events.
