With no yeast available and the challenge of keeping starter dough alive at -40ºC, sourdough became a term of respect accorded to those who survived a Yukon winter. Cheechako – This word was used during the gold rush to refer to newcomers. New arrivals to the Yukon are still called cheechakos, graduating to the status of sourdough after enduring a long winter. First nations people – The term “First Nations” may be a new one for many of you. It is used throughout Canada in place of aboriginals, natives or Indians. It recognizes aboriginal people as distinct nations and the first peoples of this land. Yukon is home to 14 First Nations. aurora – Most people talk about the northern lights, but a Northerner in-the-know calls this celestial phenomenon by its proper name, aurora borealis. Snag – This weather station near Beaver Creek has the distinction of having recorded the coldest temperature in North America: -63ºC (-81ºF) on February 3, 1947. are you wolf or Crow? – Traditional Yukon First Nations social structure is based on two clans, Wolf and Crow. Clan membership is matrilineal—inherited from mothers—and marriages usually unite a Wolf and a Crow, helping ensure continued ties between clans. travelyukon.com 21
