Please consult our page, Names and Songs are Private Property, which explains why the Yukon Native Language Centre does not pass on actual First Nations names.
The words below are from Yukon First Nations languages. They are not the names of people. They are words or phrases which the centre is often asked to provide for use in the naming of a non-native child or pet. Use of these words as names does not reflect traditional First Nations practice. But as the use does promote awareness of the languages and the cultures it may be regarded as a positive thing.
