Grief and Gratitude Community Event
A time to come together to remember, celebrate, and hold each other up.
The Council of Yukon First Nations invites you to join us as we honour loved ones lost during the pandemic. We also gather to show our gratitude to the frontline workers and community members who helped keep us safe. Family friendly event.
Due to cold weather, today’s Grief and Gratitude Community Event has moved to an indoor location. It will now take place at Decora at #7 Roundell Road. There will be fire keepers, Elders, cultural supports, entertainment, food and beverages. The event will still be streamed live on the CYFN and Northwestel Community TV Facebook pages.
