Carcross/Tagish people figured prominently in the story of the Klondike Gold Rush. Two members of the official "discovery party" were Carcross/Tagish citizens Skookum Jim and Tagish Charlie (their non-First Nation brother-in-law George Carmack was the other). There is an important Carcross/Tagish story about Skookum Jim rescuing a frog (considered by some Yukon First Nations as shamans or healers). A frog later appeared to him in a dream and told him he would find gold downriver. Here we are riding McDonald Creek. Even though we went by a few swamps, we didn't see any Frogs. No gold for us I suppose.
