  2. jess martin says

    I have always disagreed with the concept that their are ‘four main clans’, NOT so, as I was old by my elder. The only main clan exsist in our language, not in people. Athabaskin, is the original clan. upon arrival into the White World, people expanded and intergrated with local tribes that were here before us, some migrated south, forming what is now The Apaches. After some of the clans were created thru inter marriages, the four clans that say are the four main clans, came back from the southwest, searching for relatives as they were instructed.
