„Houseboats on Yellowknife Bay“

Picture ID: 28a5d89

A view of the yellowknife bay which was traditionally occupied by the First Nations people. By the 1930's they had settled on a point of land on the east side of Yellowknife Bay, Dettah. The current municipal area of Yellowknife was occupied by prospectors who ventured into the region in the mid-1930s. Today, the bay contains a variety of houseboats of all different sizes and shapes. People live in the houseboats year round, even when they become frozen in the ice.
