“Place of the cisco fish”

Population: 299

This traditional Chipewyan town is the only settlement on Great Slave Lake’s fish-filled, cliff-cradled East Arm – site of the proposed new Thaidene Nene National Park. The scenic community is accessible only by air, boat or snowmobile, and is an ideal jumping-off point for angling and paddling trips in Christie and McLeod Bays and over Pike’s Portage into the muskox- and caribou-rich Barrenlands.
