Big thanks to the Yukon Historical & Museums Association – they did a great job managing the Yukon 125 Fund to commemorate the territory’s anniversary. Congratulations to all the well-deserving recipients! The wide range of projects chosen demonstrates the rich diversity surrounding the Yukon’s journey throughout its history, present and future. I look forward to exploring the unique perspectives captured within these remarkable initiatives.
Minister of Tourism and Culture John Streicker
In this noteworthy year for the Yukon, communities are ready to come together to celebrate and reckon with our past to build a stronger future. We encourage Yukoners to participate in Yukon 125 events and seek out projects to learn more about the Yukon’s history and heritage and consider their place moving forward to create a future we are proud of. YHMA enjoyed learning about the variety of organizations and the unique projects they put forward and was honoured to help make these diverse projects happen around the territory.
