Haa Shagóon Hídi (Our Ancestors House)

The Haa Shagóon Hídi, formerly known as the Carcross/Tagish Learning Centre, is a multipurpose facility that showcases the art, culture and history of Carcross/Tagish First Nation people. We value our location and its local environment: mountain’s, lake’s, deserts, beaches, fish, plants, birds and animals. Positioned perfectly at the halfway point between Skagway and Whitehorse, between two countries, and between two cultures, this “crossing” point is where diversity can gather together.

The people and cultures of Carcross/Tagish are as diverse as its setting, beginning with the deeply rooted Carcross/Tagish First Nation, continuing through contact and the gold rush, and right up to the living pulse of today. In this shared communal space, we seek to honour this diversity while staying true to our cultural integrity. We welcome you to our beautiful gathering place to experience authentic Yukon culture and history. Come, bring yourself – you’re a part of our story now!
