Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada 07

Description : Archaeological work at Canyon City shows evidence that First Nations people have used this area for many thousands of years. There were seasonal fish camps above and below Miles Canyon and the Whitehorse Rapids, and First Nations trails extended along the banks of the river.

Traditionally, First Nations people were very mobile, covering hundreds of square kilometers in their annual round of fishing, hunting and trappping. The ranges of different groups often overlapped, and borders of traditional territories were not fixed. The Whitehorse area was probably part of the seasonal round of the Southern Tutchone and Tagish peoples of the Yukon interior, and Tlingit peoples from the coast were frequent visitors for trade.
