First Nations

Tagish is the original home of the Carcross/Tagish First Nation (CTFN), a self-governing First Nation with its administrative centre located in the town of Carcross. The original inhabitants of this area are the Tagish people who belong to the Tagish linguistic grouping of the Athapaskan language family.

The First Nation has built its governance structure based on the clan system; six Tlingit Clans are represented in the First Nation with each clan playing a vital role in the governance of the First Nation. 

Culture is alive and well with CTFN and the community is committed to their culture, to the practice of the Potlatch, and preserving the songs and dances of the clans.
