“A single document can change the world. It can spark a movement and set in motion changes for future generations. In 1973, Yukon First Nation leaders presented Together Today for our Children Tomorrow to the Prime Minister of Canada, mapping the way to Yukon First Nation land claims and self-government. "We're here to talk about our future. We are not here looking for a handout." Elijah Smith, Chief of the Yukon Native Brotherhood (1973) in 1993, the Umbrella Final Agreement was signed, confirming a people's right to determine their own fate.”
