More views from Tsiigehtchic: pop.130

 

The community of Tsiigehtchic is always a quiet place to visit. 

The fishing hamlet is alongside the Dempster Highway but separated by a quickly melting ice road. 

For the next few weeks, residents will be trapped as though on an island, until the ferry starts for the summer.

Note: CBC’s Northwind show had an interview with Tsiigehtchic elder James Cardinal, who spoke about the melting ice. Click here to listen. (Also features more photos.)
