This chapter explores the living history of Canada’s Klondike Gold Rush as both a set and set of practices striving to uphold the past, while navigating the complexities of historical narratives, economic shifts, and environmental incertitude. The performance of place in Dawson City, Yukon, and its tangible effects on individual’s lives is considered alongside the complex relationship performance has with the environment and historical circumstance.
