Ëdhä Dädhëcha¸ | Moosehide Slide


2020, 4m 15s, 16mm

The Dawson City landslide is a dominant feature of Dawson City, Yukon’s city-scape.
It is a pre-historic rock-slope failure at the northern edge of town.
It is known by the local Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in as Ëdhä Dädhëcha¸ or Moosehide Slide.
This film examines the scientific reasons for the occurrence of the slide versus
the legend that the local Indigenous people say was the actual creation event.
