Perspectives Series 1: Together Today For Our Children Tomorrow

Judy Gingell and Sam Johnston talk with moderator Brian MacDonald about developing the historic position paper Together Today For Our Children Tomorrow, traveling to Ottawa in 1973 and presenting it to then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau and minister of Indian Affairs Jean Chretien. Thus, kick-starting the negotiation process for Yukon's modern-day treaties.

The Perspectives Series is a series of panel discussions exploring the history of Yukon’s unique approach to self-government and land claims featuring the people actually at the table. It was produced in 2018, in partnership between Yukon College and Government of Yukon to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Together Today for our Children Tomorrow and 25th anniversary of the Umbrella Final Agreement.
