Can someone translate?

Hi. Can anyone tell me the literal meaning for the Tlingit name for Moose Valley or Mosquito Lake? In the Alaska Place Names database it is listed as “Kuhnteah” whereas on the Kohklux Map it is translated as “ghun-tee’-a”. I’ve always been curious, since I live here, but my Tlingit language skills are lacking. Thank […]
