Klukshu Village

Located just off the Haines Highway, Klukshu, or Klukshu Łu Ghą, is a seasonal traditional fishing village of the Southern Tutchone First Nations. Present day, the village has no permanent residents, but the Tutchone’s historic traditional way of life used Klukshu as a place for catching, cutting and drying salmon, or a hub for feasting, dancing and storytelling when relatives orTlingit traders arrived from nearby. Visitors today may still encounter traditional fishing activity during the summer and fall salmon runs, or catch a glimpse of Grizzlies in Klukshu creek or Trumpeter swans and other waterfowl in the Klukshu wetlands.
