The Dempster Highway makes it way through incredible wilderness and through the traditional lands of our local First Nations, the Gwich'in. Driving beyond the Gwich'in Settlement Area and out towards the Beaufort Sea, you will enter the traditional land of the Inuivialuit, the Inuit of the Western Arctic. While the Gwich'in, Inuvialuit, & Metis people continue to live in the communities of the Dempster Highway, so do more recent residents, making communities like Inuvik a vibrant multicultural community.
