In the past, knowing how to fish was a critical aspect of survival in the north.
As an activity, it has been underrepresented in the oral tradition and historical
sources, perhaps because it was so routine. At this place, Dah?ake
(Hook Place), Dogrib people would stop year-round to set hooks for lake trout.
Hooks, made from bone or from combinations of bone and wood, were set here in
summer, or through the ice in winter.
The archaeological remains of many campsites can be found in the area, testament
to generations of use.
