worked to clean up and restore the
cemetery at the base of Two Mile
Hill and the old graveyard behind
the Whitehorse Hospital. The work
crews cleared brush, repainted fences
and repaired spirit houses.
This project was a cooperative effort
between the Lands, Resources and
Claims Implementation Department
and Community Services and was
funded by a grant from the Yukon
government. Kwanlin Dün cemetery was a place I had an opportunity to visit in the Fall of 2014 and I went back this week. ( sadly the gate was closed so I could not get a close look but then I remembered I had taken pictures in 2014 that I never posted ( and I pray I am not angering the spirits by posting now.
The Spirit Houses are beautiful and inspiring but a little sad because I am not sure those that have this as their final resting place are visited often nor are the houses maintained as well as we would hope.
