“Where the waters meet”
Welcome to the Hamlet of Tulita, Northwest Territories
Hugging the broad Mackenzie River (Dehcho), where it’s met by the clear-running Great Bear River, Tulita, NWT, long occupied by the Dene, got its start as a formal settlement with the establishment of a trading post in 1869. It enjoys a dramatic setting: The Mackenzie Mountains rise across the river, while just north of town looms distinctive Bear Rock, famous in Dene lore. Access is by air, in winter, by ice-road from Wrigley, or by the Mackenzie River.
