“Rabbit-net place”

Population: 296

This placid town got its start in the 1970s when Tłįchǫ Dene founded a traditional settlement on the point between Rae Lake and Lac Ste. Croix, halfway between Great Bear and Great Slave. In summer it’s typically reached by plane from Yellowknife, while in winter it’s an adventurous 213-kilometre trip via ice road. Grayling fishing, lake tours, and local crafts await visitors. Intrepid wilderness paddlers sometimes set out from here en route to Behchokǫ̀ on the Marian Lakes/Camsell River route.
