Tutchone Indians of Canada

Tutchone. Usually called Tutchone-kutchin, but their connection with the true Kutchin seems to be denied by later investigators; meaning of name "Crow People." Also called:

Caribou Indians, by Dall (1877, p. 32).
Gens de bois, by Whymper (1869, p. 255).
Gens des Foux, by Dall (1870, p. 429).
Klo-a-tsul-tshik´, by Dawson (1889, p. 202).
Mountain Indians, by Hardisty (1867, p. 311).
Nehaunee, by Dall (1877, p. 32). (So called by Hudson's Bay Co. men.)
Tatanchaks, by Colyer (1870, p. 593).
Wood Indians, by Dawson (1889, p. 202). (So called by fur traders.)

Connections. The Tutchone belonged to the Athapascan stock and were probably most closely related to the Han Indians on the Yukon River to the north and the Nabesna Indians to the west.

Location. Between the Han Indians and the Nahane country.

Population. Hodge (1910), gives 1,100, on what authority is not stated, and it is uncertain how many other tribes may be included in whole or in part.
