Haa Shagóon Hídi (Our Ancestors House)


Visit the "crossing point". When you visit the Haa Shagóon Hídi (also known as the Carcross Learning Centre) you’ll find yourself surrounded by majestic mountains, fish-full lakes, a one-of-a-kind desert, vast beaches, and abounding animal and plant life. Perfectly situated at the halfway point between Skagway and Whitehorse, the centre is the halfway point between two countries, the halfway point between two cultures, and the “crossing” point where all this diversity comes 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, they seek to honour this diversity while staying true to their cultural integrity.

You’re welcomed to their beautiful gathering place to experience authentic Yukon First Nation culture and history.

Visit, bring yourself — you’re a part of the story now.
