KIAC respectfully acknowledges that we live, teach and learn on the traditional and contemporary territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in.

In 2019, as a part of a Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in initiative to rename local buildings, the Elder’s Council honoured the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture building with a new name, Dënäkär Zho, meaning “mixed colours house” in Hän. With the understanding that the renaming of the building, and the associated ceremony, is just one step in the path of truth and reconciliation, we hope this symbolic act will help inspire further discussions, collaborations, and actions.
