Old Crow

Old Crow is the northern most community in Yukon, and is accessible only by aircraft, or canoe if you like an adventure. Old Crow derives its name from an Indian Chief, "Deetru' K'avihdik", which means "Crow May I Walk". Following his death in the 1870's, his people named the river, mountain and area in his honor, thus being the community of Old Crow. It is home to the Vuntut Gwitchin, meaning “People of the Lakes” Their main source of livelihood is trapping, hunting and fishing. The population is approximately 300. Link: http://www.oldcrow.ca
