Kwanlin (Quan-Lin) ~ Southern Tutchone: This room is named “water running through canyon” and refers to present day Miles Canyon, a natural basalt bottleneck of the Yukon River. These white water rapids were very dangerous, and coincidentally also inspired the name Whitehorse. Archaeological investigations have revealed First Nation use of these sites dated over 2,500 years ago.
