Shäwshe/ Neskatahin (Dalton Post)

Shäwshe was once the largest village in the southern part of dákéyi (our country). Understood by our Elders to be a very old settlement, Shäwshe is situated on the Tatshenshini River between two salmon äjel (spawning) streams. Families from across the southern Yukon came here when the fish were running. Shäwshe also came to be known by the Tlingit name Neskatahin.
