Dick Nukon & Hyacinthe André

    Dick Nukon and Hyacinthe André, both former chiefs from small Gwich'in village. Nukon, from Old Crow, Hyacinthe from Arctic Red River, now know as Tetlit Zheh. Gatherings, such as the one held at Fort Yukon, provide these two friends the opportunity to share ideas. Old Crow is located about 250 river miles from Ft. Yukon, while Tetlit Zheh is located along the McKenzie River. Though the settlement often floods in the springtime, the Dene (Gwich'in) settled at the spot in 1852 because it provided a good view of the Mackenzie Delta.
