About Long Ago Peoples Place
Our camp, located on the Champagne Access Road, about an hour west of Whitehorse, has been in operation since 1995. In 2015 we celebrated twenty years in service to our culture and heritage. We bring you back through time using recreations of traditional Southern Tutchone (First Nations) structures and tools.
We have long been celebrated by schools throughout the Yukon, who love to bring their classes (all ages) to our camp for lessons in First Nations’ history. Some stay for the day, while many chose to overnight or multi-night. We have activities and programming for any length of stay.
We are also popular with tour companies (bike, bus), who wish to add a Native History element to their visitors’ stay in the Yukon. Our guest books are full of glowing compliments from our many visitors over the past twenty years.
On top of this, we have many “stop-ins” from visitors driving the Alaska Highway from Whitehorse towards Haines Junction or vice-versa. Our new blue Highway signs are attracting tourists, who want to take the Champagne by-pass, which reconnects back to the Alaska Highway.
Finally we are a resource to our own First Nation community, who use the camp to reconnect to the land and to the ways of the past, and foster pride in our people to know that our culture is one to be celebrated and shared with the world.
