Witness the art of the ancients

At the Acho Dene Native Crafts store in the heart of Fort Liard, the first thing that’ll strike you is the scent: The warm aroma of tanned moosehide, the crisp tang of birchbark, the redolence of fur. The store is a one-stop-shop for Dene arts and crafts, from brightly beaded moccasins to exquisite woven baskets. Even better, it’s the town’s visitor centre – as rich in info as in art. Be sure to pay a visit.
