The Kwanlin Dun First Nation is a self-governing first nation whose traditional territory encompasses parts of the Yukon Territory’s capital city and beyond. They are 1 of only 2 urban first nations in the territory and one of the few first nation communities in the country to have their own community owned and operated health centre, referred to as Natshèki Kų. Natshèki Kų uses a collaborative care model in all aspects of program delivery. Genuine community involvement has been the leading factor in its unique success. Learn about health care delivery in a true first nations context, the necessity of being a strong advocate for indigenous health issues and the importance of having people with lived experience influencing program delivery.
