Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre Review
Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre creates an inviting atmosphere in which to explore the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Alaska Native heritage. For countless generations this group of Hän-speaking people lived in the Yukon River drainage of western Yukon and eastern Alaska. This specific language group settled around the mouth of the Klondike River. Through seasonal displays, tours, cultural activities, films, and performances, learn about the traditional and contemporary life of "the people of the river." The gift shop celebrates fine Alaska Native art, offering unique Alaska Native clothing, beaded footwear, music, and books. The displays are kind of sparse, but it's good to stop in and see what the gold rush was like for the people who were here first and saw there was more value to a good caribou hunt than a bunch of shiny stuff in the ground.
