CANOEING ON THE PORCUPINE RIVER
The Porcupine river flows in Alaska and Yukon. The source of the river is located in the Olgivie Mountains, in the north of Dawson City and flows north for 721km (448 miles), then southwest. It goes through the community of Old Crow in Yukon and flows into the Yukon river at Fort Yukon. It was discovered in 1842 by John Bell. A herd of 125 000 caribous live in the river’s valley and is considered as one of the largest in the world.
A 19 days trip including 13 canoeing
THE SPIRIT OF THIS TRIPThe Porcupine caribous herd migrates in the north of Yukon and in the northwest of Alaska. For thousands years, the herd was the only source of food, clothes, tools and houses for Gwitch'in and Inuvialuits living in this tundra region. This is still the case today. Indeed, the herd is still the major source of livelihood and the source of their cultural identity.In Old Crow, a village near the river, excitement is at its climax. Caribous are close, ready to cross the river. Indians wait and observe. Everyone knows that their clan livelihood only depends on the quantity of meat, fishes and wild fruits they will get. When caribous finally arrive, the new quickly spreads in the village and even further.
