Jean Marie River

Jean Marie River (Tthedzehk'edeli – “water flowing over clay”) is at the confluence of the Jean Marie and Mackenzie rivers. Traditional subsistence lifestyles are the foundation of the community. In addition to hunting, trapping and fishing, traditional Slavey arts and crafts, such as porcupine quill and moosehair tufting, also provide some income.

The community is connected to the Mackenzie Highway system by a year round access road. The Louie Norwegian School offers K-9, and the community has groceries, a health centre and accommodation.
