On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Together Today for Our Children Tomorrow

On February 14, 1973, Elijah Smith and a delegation of Yukon First Nation chiefs presented Together Today for Our Children Tomorrow, to then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. The document marked the beginning of negotiations for modern-day treaties in Yukon.

Forty years later, there is much to celebrate. Yukon First Nation self-government is unique in Canada and internationally. The accomplishments of Yukon First Nations are a model for the rest of the country.

I encourage all Yukoners to learn more about how Final and self-government agreements make Yukon a great place to live and work.

Darrell Pasloski

Premier of Yukon
