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.

 

It is a small town of about 300 people, located north of the Arctic Circle, 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. The community rely heavily on the land and on the Porcupine Caribou Herd for subsistence and cultural connections.
