  Hammerstones: A History of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in: This is the story of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in, the First Nations people who lived at the confluence of the Klondike and Yukon rivers. The 1896 Klondike gold discoveries brought massive changes to the Yukon and displaced the Tr'ondek Hwech'in from their traditional home at Tr'ochek. Mining destroyed hunting grounds, new laws limited access to the land and the newcomers almost overwhelmed their culture. A century later, the battle to save Tr'ochek was part of a larger struggle by the Tr'ondek Hwech'in to regain control of their lives and become a self-governing First Nation. Today, the Tr'ondek Hwech'in celebrate their heritage as hey build for the future.
