What is “Rabbit Creek?”

Rabbit Creek is a small tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon. In the heart of the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in people, this area was known as good hunting ground. However, by virtue of the signs of the land – such as the bend of the poplars – gold prospectors believed that there was no gold there. That was until one day in August of 1896 when a small hunting party stumbled across a thick vein of gold in the humble creek… and the great Klondike gold rush was on. (Who actually did the discovering? Excellent question.) Rabbit Creek was promptly re-named Bonanza Creek and became the site of some of the most amazing stories, feats and the epic adventure of a generation.
