The Southern Tutchone are a First Nations people living mainly in the southern Yukon in Canada. The Southern Tutchone language, traditionally spoken by the Southern Tutchone people, is a variety of the Tutchone language, part of the Athabaskan language family. Some linguists suggest that Northern and Southern Tutchone are distinct and separate languages.
Southern Tutchone First Nations governments and communities include:
- Champagne and Aishihik First Nations (Haines Junction, Champagne, and Aishihik in Yukon)
- Ta'an Kwach'an Council (Whitehorse, Yukon and Lake Laberge)
- Kluane First Nation (Burwash Landing, Yukon)
Many citizens of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation in Whitehorse are of Southern Tutchone origin. Many Champagne and Aishihik members also live in Whitehorse.
