Yukon U, UBCO publish free book about Yukon’s First Nations Peoples

July 29, 2020
Yukon University and the University of British Columbia Okanagan have published a book focused on the history, culture, and modern-day realities of Yukon First Nations. ECHO: Ethnographic, Cultural and Historic Overview of Yukon’s First Nations Peoples features interviews with Yukon-based academics, community researchers, and Yukon First Nations artists. “Including a chapter on modern-day governance was incredibly important as an overview of this important milestone has not been covered in textbooks previously,” said Tosh Southwick of Yukon U. “We also wanted to include and honour the many individuals who contributed to achieving modern self-determination in Yukon.” The book is freely available on BCcampus.
