We are happy to see you folks.

The name, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, tells the story of our ancestral occupation of the ancient site located at the mouth of present day Klondike on the left limit. Tr’o means hammer rock used to drive the salmon weir stakes into the mouth of the river, ndëk is the “river” part and Hwëch’in means the “people”. Liberally translated, it means: the people who lived at the mouth of the Klondike.
