Indigenous People

The City of Yellowknife honours and recognizes the importance of First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples to the development of our city.  Indigenous peoples have contributed leadership, traditions, culture, values and vision – contributions that continue to be vital to our political, social, economic and cultural future.

The City of Yellowknife recognises that our settler footprint here is new, and we must honour the original residents and  the significant contributions of Indigenous peoples. We are  actively working towards reconciliation, balancing this with a common vision for our community and needs articulated by all our citizens.  Other Indigenous people from Turtle Island (North America), European settlers and immigrant descendants; and new immigrants now contribute to the diversity and culture of Yellowknife – we all enrich the fabric of Yellowknife.
