Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre

Welcome to Dänojà Zho (long time ago house) in Dawson City. Situated on the bank of the Yukon River, Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre is a gateway into Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in heritage. Our knowledgeable staff brings the Hammerstone Gallery to life, sharing our story of life before the arrival of the gold seekers. Hear tales of life on the land, survival skills, leadership, and the strength and success of our community today. Take a tour and get to know us!

The Gathering Room Gallery has a new exhibit each summer. Artifacts, family heirlooms, photographs and films share different aspects of community life. Afternoons we host a wide variety of hands-on activities or entertainment to enjoy. At Dänojà Zho we strive to provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for learning and sharing. Our friendly staff is renowned for their northern hospitality.
