Today, August 1, 2023, KDFN joined Carcross/Tagish First Nation and Ta’an Kwäch’än Council for the First Salmon Welcoming Ceremony at the Whitehorse Fish Ladder.

Dozens gathered along the shores of Chu Níikwän, also known as the Yukon River, to welcome this year’s first salmon.

Shä̀w níthän, másin cho, gunałchÎsh, and thank you to everyone who came out!
