Gwichya Gwich’in Council
TSIIGEHTCHIC

Tsiigehtchic – which translates in the Gwich’in language as “at the mouth of the iron river” – was formerly known as Arctic Red River. The name may refer to the iron or mineral deposit found in the soil further up the Arctic Red. The community was the first Loucheux (Gwich’in) Indian band to sign Treaty 11 in 1921.
