Brief Profile

The Kaska Dena are a First Nations people group who reside mainly in northern British Columbia and the southeastern Yukon in Canada.

Their communities include: (1) Ross River, Yukon (Ross River Dena Council), (2) Watson Lake, Yukon and Upper Liard, Yukon (Liard River First Nation), (3) Good Hope Lake, British Columbia (Dease River First Nation), (4) Lower Post, British Columbia near Watson Lake (Lower Post First Nation), and (5) Fort Ware, British Columbia (Kwadacha First Nation). They also live in British Columbia communities of Fireside and Muncho Lake, between Watson Lake and Fort Nelson, British Columbia along the Alaska Highway.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Kaska converted to Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. Today most Kaska are nominally Roman Catholics, although they are not particularly devout.

For more information, see the Kaska Dena Council website. The Council promotes and protects Kaska culture, language and heritage.
