This open-source handbook is meant to support our students by providing access to free online content that reduces the financial hardship many of our students face while also providing succinct easy to access materials focusing on Yukon First Nation cultures to Yukon’s communities. We see this book as a living document, one that will allow us to make changes to the book as our disciplines evolve and as needed to reflect the changing cultural and governance landscape of the territory.

We encourage ongoing feedback from readers and editors. This can be done in two ways. Editorial comments can be shared directly at the bottom of each web page. The other option is to email the authors directly at

    Dazawray has shared the launching of your book with me. Whirl my area of OhD research is on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), I’m thrilled for you and this exciting step in your research. I would love an e-copy of your book and check links between indigenous knowledge and DRR.
