Name[change | change source]
The Gwich'in call themselves the Dinjii Zhuu, which means "small people" in their language.
Language[change | change source]
The Gwich'in have their own language. It is split into two dialects, the Canadian and the American dialects. However, not many of them speak it as they now use English. In Alaska, only 300 Gwich'in know how to speak Gwich'in.
