Mount Minto/K’iyán Conservancy
About This ConservancyMount Minto/K’iyán Conservancy was established as a result of the Wóoshtin Wudidaa Atlin Taku Land Use Plan and Taku River Tlingit First Nation Strategic Engagement Agreement.
The conservancy is centred on Mount Minto, which is a sacred mountain to the Tlingit people. According to legend, the remains of the rope used to tie a raft to the mountain during a great flood, turned to stone on one of the ridges at the mountain top. The Tlingit name for this mountain (K’iyán) means “Hemlock at the base of it”. Hemlock holds significance to the Tlingit people as it was used to make brush houses along the coast.
The conservancy is located approximately 50 kilometres north of Atlin in the asserted traditional territory of the Taku River Tlingit and Carcross/Tagish First Nations.
This site is under construction; more information on this conservancy will be added when it becomes available.
Date Established: May 31, 2012
