The Chechahcos is a 1924 silent film about the gold rush days in the Klondike. Chechahco, more commonly spelled cheechako, is a Chinook Jargon word for "newcomer", and the film focuses on a group of would-be prospectors sailing for Alaska.
The film was directed by Lewis H. Moomaw and produced by Austin E. Lathrop, who himself was once a prospector.
