The Yukon First Nation Party is a territorial First Nations political party in Yukon, Canada.

It was registered three days before the 2011 general election was called, by Gerald Dickson Sr., a member of the Kluane First Nation. Dickson created the party with the encouragement of several First Nation elders, who felt that their issues were not being heard.[1][2] The party believes in sustaining the traditional laws of respect, honour, love, compassion, and harmony.[3]
