Old Crow derives its name from an Indian Chief, "Deetru` K`avihdik", which means "Crow May I Walk". Following his death in the 1870's, his people named the river, mountain and area in his honor, thus being the community of Old Crow.
Old Crow is a small town of about 300 aboriginal people; known as the Vuntut Gwitchin. Located at the confluence of the Crow and Porcupine Rivers, Old Crow is an isolated community, being the only village in the Yukon Territory, which does not have road access. Old Crow is also the only Yukon community located north of the Arctic Circle. People in Old Crow enjoy long summer days and experience the short days of winter.
