Birch Creek Tribe


The Denduu Gwich’in were a nomadic people and have traditionally occupied the Yukon Flats area south of the Yukon River for thousands of years, but have only in fairly recent history settled to where Birch Creek is today. Birch Creek was founded and used as a seasonal camp by the great Chief Birch Creek James in the early 1900’s, and it was with the establishment of a school in the 1950’s when Birch Creek became a permanent town.
