It was a happy coincidence that Montana Mountain was Carcross/Tagish Settlement Land AND the most suitable area for trail development in Carcross. The Yukon is a world leader with respect to settled aboriginal land claims. 11 of 14 Yukon First Nations are self-governing. They are governments in the fullest sense, with constitutionally protected Final and Self-Government Agreements that set out their various powers - to enact legislation, collect taxes, and fully determine their future. They literally OWN most of that mountain and exercise full decision-making authority over it (along with many other tracts of land in the Carcross area).
