T'èɂehda – “Burnt point”

Population: 236

One of two Yellowknives Dene settlements on the outskirts of Yellowknife, this idyllic community occupies an enviable spot on the rolling shield-rock at the mouth of Yellowknife Bay. In winter you can drive, ski or walk here on the six-kilometre ice road from Yellowknife's Old Town, while in summer it’s a worthwhile 27-kilometre road trip by bike or car. Look for huskies howling, whitefish drying on racks and moosehides being tanned.
