Crow’s Yukon Journey

Completed: 1997

A 5-panel piece created by Bill Oster and David Ashley in 1997.
Called “Crow’s Yukon Journey”, it illustrates Crow’s journey over the developing Yukon.

The first scene shows the world before humans changed the landscape, and then First Nations’ traditional use of the land.

Next comes the changes in the landscape brought about by early industrialization which continues into the modern world where both natural and man-made elements co-exist.

In the centre, a turning wheel represents the introduction of machines into the Yukon during the Klondike gold rush.
