Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre

Dawson City

Welcome to Dänojà Zho (long time ago house). Situated on the bank of the Yukon River, Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre is a gateway into Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in heritage. Our knowledgeable staff brings the Hammerstone Gallery to life, sharing the story of life before the arrival of the gold seekers. Stories of life on the land, survival skills, leadership, and the strength and success of our community today.

In the Gathering Room we present a new exhibit each summer on a wide variety of subjects. The 'Heart Of The Homeland' river walk tour brings the focus to one of the most important heritage features of our traditional territory: the Yukon River and the ancestral fish camp of Tr’ochëk.

Dänojà Zho provides a relaxed atmosphere for learning and sharing. We encourage our guests to take in a cultural program or hands on activity while visiting the centre. The Dänojà Zho gift shop specializes in a wide variety of hand-made clothing, beaded footwear, and jewelry. We also specialize in Northern and First Nation books, art, music, and gifts.
