Tulita (where the waters meet) formerly Fort Norman

Tulita is located a short 45 miles east of Norman Wells and is on the shoreline of the Great Bear and Mackenzie rivers. The community was established in 1810 as a Northwest Trading Post that was the entry point for Sir John Franklin's expeditions. Today the community relies on hunting, fishing and trapping. The inhabitants of Tulita include Metis, Mountain Dene and Dene families. Guests traveling to Tulita can look forward to seeing Bear Rock and the clear water of the Bear River spilling into the muddy Mackenzie. North-Wright Airways services Tulita twice daily Monday through Friday and once on Saturday. Tulita has lots to offer in the way of history for those willing to learn.
