Haa kusteeyí


There is not very much information describing the origins of the G̱aanax̱teidí clan. One story quoted by McClellan, talks about a chief near Ketchikan who found his wife's lover hiding in a box...and killed him. This caused trouble, and part of the clan moved away and settled in places like Hutsnuwu and Chilkat. Apparently, four G̱aanax̱teidí women married Yanyeidí men from the Taku River (which is how G̱aanax̱teidí came to exist in the interior).

The G̱aanax̱teidí claim crow as their emblem.
