The People

The people who live in the lower Mackenzie Valley and in the greater Beaufort/Delta region are from a surprizing range of cultural backgrounds. The majority of the population is made up of Native people, the area's original inhabitants. Two distinct First Nations are present in a number of communities throughout the region. Within the past few decades, there has also been a growing number of non-Native people taking up residence in the region as new opportunities developed. The presence of these people is most obvious in the multi-cultural town of Inuvik.
