Denínu Kųę – “Moose island place”
At the terminus of Hwy 6, where the Slave River washes into Great Slave Lake, this Chipewyan and Métis town is the oldest in the NWT. Founded when the North West Company began trading for furs here in 1791, trapping remains a key local industry, along with commercial fishing and timber-harvesting. There’s lots of lush, scenic lakeshore where you can take a stroll, cast a line, or launch a boat into the waves.
