Perspectives Series: Together Today For Our Children Tomorrow

January 30, 2018

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Together Today for Our Children Tomorrow and the 25th anniversary of the Umbrella Final Agreement Yukon College and Government of Yukon partnered to present a speakers series on Yukon’s unique approach to self-governance and land claims.

This important document articulated Yukon First Nations grievances and called for a settlement between the federal and First Nations Peoples.  Together Today for Our Children Tomorrow was accepted by the Prime Minister and it formed the basis for the negotiation of Yukon’s land claim agreements.

Speakers: Judy Gingell and Sam Johnson were present in Ottawa when Together Today For Our Children Tomorrow was presented to the Prime Minister of Canada in 1973.
