Member Hamlet of Aklavik

 From its earliest days, Aklavik has been a multi-ethnic town, home to Inuvialuit, Metis, Gwich'in and non-aboriginal cultures. Situated on the west side of the Mackenzie Delta, approximately 1.6 degrees above the Arctic Circle, Aklavik was once considered the transportation, commercial and administrative capital of the western Arctic.
