Juneau's Native American guide in southeastern Alaska was Chief Kowee, who is credited with exploring much of the area later named for Juneau. Harris and Juneau were sent with Kowee by George Pilz, an entrepreneur and mining engineer from Sitka. After trading much of their grubstake for hoochinoo, or home brew, they returned to Pilz empty-handed, but were promptly sent back to the Juneau area. There, Kowee took them beyond Gold Creek (near what is now the site of the city's Federal Building) to Silver Bow Basin. Today, a creek on Douglas Island is named Kowee Creek.

  • Joseph Juneau, también llamado Joe Juneau, (1836-1899) fue un minero canadiense. La ciudad de Juneau en Alaska tiene el nombre en su honor ya que él descubrió oro en esa ciudad. El primer descubrimiento se produjo alrededor de 1880. Joé Juneau viajó a Dawson City, Yukón durante la fiebre del oro de la década de 1890. Por lo general pasaba oro tan rápido como llegó, y al final de su vida fue dueño de un restaurante pequeño en Dawson. Murió en 1899 por neumonía, sus restos descansan en el cementerio de Evergreen. Su tío Salomón Juneau fundó la ciudad de Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
