  1. Gwich'in

    The Gwich’in, literally "one who dwells" or "resident of [a region]", are a First Nations of Canada and an Alaska Native Athabaskan people of the Athabaskan-speaking ethnolinguistic group who live in the northwestern part of North America, mostly above the Arctic Circle. The Gwichʼin were also known by the French name of Loucheux in historical documents, as well as the Tukudh, a term used by Anglican missionaries. Gwich’in often refer to themselves by the term Dinjii Zhuu instead of Gwich’in. Dinjii Zhuu literally translates as "Small People," but figuratively it refers to 'Indians', not just Gwich’in. The Gwich’in men are well known for their crafting of snowshoes, birchbark canoes, and the two-way sled. The women are renowned for their intricate and ornate beadwork. They also continue to make traditional caribou-skin clothing and porcupine sewing using porcupine quills, both of which are highly regarded among Gwich'in. Today the economy is mostly a mix of hunting, fishing, and seasonal wage-paying employment.
