The City of Whitehorse is proudly located within the traditional territories of the Ta'an Kwäch'än Council and Kwanlin Dün First Nation and is the home to citizens of these and many other First Nations. Whitehorse also has Métis and Inuit populations.
Long, warm summer nights. Snowy winter evenings around the fire. Whatever climate you enjoy, Whitehorse has it.
