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 Dädhëcha̧ or Moosehide Slide. This film juxtaposes the scientific reasons for the occurrence of the slide versus the legend that the local Indigenous people say was the actual creation event.
