Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Chief Kaalaxch’ (Kohklux) Map
Drawn in 1869 by the Tlingit Chief Kaalaxch’ (Kohklux), this rare map is one of the few examples of Indigenous map making in the North. It is especially important to CAFN because it is the oldest map of dákeyi (our traditional territory). We want to share the story behind the map,as well as family and community stories related to the trade.
Please join us to celebrate the connection between our people - Dän (Tutchone) and Tlingit - through this important piece of our history. Please bring your regalia, stories and songs to share!
Everyone is welcome.
One of the original maps drawn by Chief Kohklux and his wives will be coming north from San Fransisco for the anniversary celebrations!

Home Routes Concerts
We’ve got the first copy of the draft schedule for the 13th Annual National Concert Series: Home Routes. A big thank you to the gracious hosts/organizers who open up their living rooms to bring live music to your community. Home Routes concerts are hosted in over 150 communities across Canada. This model of arts production makes it feasible for professional musicians to reach communities throughout the country. They return home with new connections, lifelong friends, money in their pockets, recordings sold, and usually want to sign up for another tour.
