Pedzéh Kı̨́ – “Clay place”

Population: 146

The northernmost Dehcho Dene community, this small log-cabin settlement sits on a high bluff overlooking the Mackenzie River. Tucked with a view of the Franklin Mountains, it’s scenic and serene, with a traditional lifestyle revolving around trapping, hunting and fishing. Access is by Hwy 1, which rolls through the foothills north from Fort Simpson and crosses the Mackenzie by ferry or ice-road (except during breakup/ freeze-up).
