Da Kų “Our House” proudly showcases traditional and modern works by Champagne and Aishihik First Nations (CAFN) artists. Open since 2012, the centers’ permanent displays and artworks tell our story from earliest beginnings to contemporary times as a modern self-governing people. A feature exhibit show-cases Champagne & Aishihik, Southern Tutchone and Athapaskan Treasures from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Indoors, don’t miss the pair of copper tinha (copper plates) mounted on the doors to the Assembly Hall, and the "grove" of fire-killed trees. Outdoors you will find various structures that depict life on the land, including a pair of high caches at the building’s entrance.

Please stop in and visit “Our House”.
