The Duke and Duchess received an elder blessing, and experienced a display of song and a welcome dance by the Dakhká Khwáan Dancers.
The royals clearly enjoyed the ceremony very much.
Kensington Palace posted this beautiful photo - the Duke and Duchess will be visitng the "stunning Carcross Commons and Montana Mountain".
A little background on Carcross: Caribou Crossing was a fishing and hunting camp for Inland Tlingit and Tagish people. 4,500-year-old artifacts from First Nations people living in the area have been found in the region. Caribou Crossing was named after the migration of huge numbers of caribou over the natural land bridge between Lake Bennett and Nares Lake. That caribou herd was depleted during the Klondike Gold Rush, but a recovery program raised the number of animals to about 450. The modern village began in 1896, during the Klondike Gold Rush. At the time, Caribou Crossing was a popular stopping place for prospectors going to and from the gold fields of Dawson City. Caribou Crossing was also a station for the Royal Mail and the Dominion Telegraph Line, and it served as a communications point on the Yukon River.
The small town is home to less than 300 people.

Emily Nash reports "William and Kate climb out of the cab of a steam train on the White Pass and Yukon Route in Carcross. It was an unplanned stop but the Duke couldn't resist climbing on board and each had a go at blowing the steam whistle! The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh travelled in one of the carriages during their 1959 visit to Yukon. Choo choo!"
The children of Carcross Commons showed off their new playground.
The Duchess meets local schoolgirl Okasana Baerg.
At Montana Mountain, the Duke and Duchess received hugs from locals.
This is one of my favourite photos of the tour thus far; it's such a lovely picture depicting how warmly William and Kate have been received across British Columbia and Yukon.
More from the Daily Express:
'Gwen Wally, 48, from the Carcross Tagish First Nation shouted out to Prince William, interrupting as he and Kate were chatting to her son, Shane Wally. "I love you. I loved your mum. I've been watching you since you were little," she shouted."Is that your mother?" William asked, laughing.
"That is my mother," Shane, 26, said slightly awkwardly. "I was pretty nervous but also pretty proud. She is their biggest fan," he said after talking to the couple about a mountain bike trail scheme his family helped to set up at Montana Mountain in Carcross, Yukon, in northern Canada.
William and Kate walked across to a group of parents and grandparents involved in the project, including Mrs Wally. They hugged her and another member of the Carcross First Nation band, Susan James. Mrs Wally told the royal couple: "You just made the top of my bucket list. I've been following you since the days of Diana." She told Kate she had made some slippers for Prince George and Princess Charlotte but had been told she could not give then to the couple so planned to post them instead. "I'll look out for them," Kate said.'
They watched a mountain biking demonstration atop Montana Mountain with the Single Track to Success (S2S) project which not only builds world class trails, it provides life-changing experiences to local youths and contributes to tourism in the area.
The Duke and Duchess met young riders.
Montana Mountain really is breathtaking!
The Duchess championed Canadian brands for her second ensemble of the day. The brand confirmed Kate wore their Ribbed Sleeves Wrapped Coat - it has now been renamed the 'Kate Coat'.
The $920 'gull' coloured coat is described: "This double-faced superfine alpaca wrap coat has the Sentaler signature ribbed detail on sleeves. It is the perfect statement piece." The coat features a belted waist, shawl collar, two slit pockets at front and Sentaler signature ribbed detail on full sleeves.
Kate's choice of Canadian designer Sentaler will come as no surprise to many of you who suggested the brand for Kate in our 'Choose Your Dream Tour Look for Kate' posts. In fact reader 'Sonshine' actually predicted the exact coat in pink.

The Duchess donned a pair of brown cowgirl boots. We'll update when they are positively identified.
Kate's new earrings are by local Yukon designer, Shelley MacDonald. The $95 Ulu earrings are available to pre-order on Shelley's Etsy Page - her designs are inspired by nature and handmade. Kate's Closet spoke with a representative for the brand who revealed the earrings were for sale in a store in Whitehorse and must have been purchased by Kate or a member of her team.
