Kwanlin Dun First Nation (KDFN)



Kwanlin: Running water through canyon

We are the Citizens of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation living together in the Traditional Territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation. We acknowledge the Tagish Kwan as the original people who live and occupy the lands within the Traditional Territory, which lie at the headwaters of the Yukon River. For many generations, our people have lived along the Chu Nínkwän (today, the Yukon River).

Linguistically, the Kwanlin Dün are affiliated with the Southern Tutchone Tribal Council. The Kwanlin Dün include people of Southern Tutchone, Tagish and Tlingit descent. A large part of the Kwanlin Dün citizens live in the Whitehorse area, with the balance dispersed throughout Canada, the U.S. (predominantly Alaska) and abroad.
