Selkirk First Nation

The Selkirk First Nation (SFN) maintains administration and government offices in the vicinity of the village of Pelly Crossing on the Klondike Highway in central Yukon, about 280 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse.

SFN has a total of approximately 480 registered members. A little less than half live outside Pelly Crossing, in other communities.The Selkirk First Nation people are closely affiliated with the Northern Tutchone groups of the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun and the Little Salmon Carmacks First Nation.

The Selkirk First Nation signed its land claim and self-government agreements in July 1997. As a self-governing First Nation, SFN can make laws on behalf of its membership and deliver an array of programs and services to its citizens.
