Sarah Jane Firth


Sarah Jane Firth was born at Rock River, Yukon on May 25th, 1924. Sarah was the eldest of seven siblings raised by her parents Sarah and Abraham Francis, with her grandmother Annie Vaneltsi (Tl’oh Ts’aii) who played a special role in her upbringing. For the first nine years of her life she remained in the bush with her family, but was then sent to school in Hay River. Sarah considers both her  years spent living in the bush and her years spent studying at school to have been equally enriching educational experiences.
