Teetł'it Zheh – “Place at the head of the waters”
The first community you’ll encounter when driving north on the Dempster, this friendly Gwich’in town is set in the rolling Richardson foothills along the Peel River, a popular paddling route. Don’t miss the famous Tent and Canvas shop, source of heavy-duty trapper’s tents, satchels and souvenirs, as well as the graves of the Lost Patrol – four Mounties who died en route to Dawson City in the terrible winter of 1911.
