“Danoja Zho - native museum and culture centre”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

My 13 year old son and I went here in late August 2013. We found it very interesting. A good film to start off with, talking about the natives of the past and present. It focused on a chief who had the good sense to shelter his people from the gold rush and move them outside of the city at the time. He preserved their heritage and "gave" songs and stories to their equals to a native tribe in Alaska for safe-keeping. Simply fabulous! The museum was very interesting. We were lucky enough to be there when one of the staff was making bannock bread so we got to try some. Yummy!!!!! She has won awards for it so I highly recommend it!

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We didn't have the time to take a guided tour so we went around the museum on our own.

“Learn about the Klondike's First Nation's people”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

A relatively new centre dedicated to the First Nation's of the area , this cultural centre is run by the First Nation's community to tell their own fascinating story and to provide a place to meet and celebrate their heritage. Do not miss a visit here and be sure to see the short film. You will gain a better understanding of the accomplishments and current day initiatives of these original inhabitants of the Klondike.
