Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The Da Kų Culture Centre is an innovative cultural facility located in Dakwäkäda (Haines Junction) in the southern part of Canada's Yukon Territory. Da Kų (Our House) celebrates the culture and traditions of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations (CAFN) Dän (people). The centre is a teaching, curatorial and interpretive facility, providing programming directed to our Citizens as well as the general public. Da Kų honours our language and stories, our strong connection to the land, and our living culture. Da Kų also connects the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations Dän to the wider community of Dakéyi, our southern Yukon and northwestern British Columbia homeland. These links are illustrated by the other agencies housed in our facility - Parks Canada's Kluane National Park Visitor Centre, with its feature exhibits, and Yukon Government's Visitor Information Centre, which showcases pieces from the Yukon Permanent Art Collection. No admission is charged for visiting Da Kų. We recommend a couple hours be allowed for visiting the centre.

Our bus tour group visited here in June 2013 while on our way to Whitehorse. We were first treated to a meal made by the locals that included their native bread called bannock. It was so yummy! The museum was so delightful and loaded with displays and information. The locals also acted as guides and were helpful in answering any questions we had. They seemed really proud of this new building and its contents. We totally enjoyed it!
