Learn More About Wrigley, Northwest Territories
Wrigley (South Slavey language: Pehdzeh Ki "clay place") is a "Designated Authority" in the Dehcho Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. The community is located on the east bank of the Mackenzie River, just below its confluence with the Wrigley River and about 466 mi (750 km) northwest of Yellowknife.
Originally situated at Fort Wrigley, the community relocated to its present location in 1965, because it was more easily accessible due to the World War II Wrigley Airport, built for the Canol Project. Today the community can be reached via the Mackenzie Highway. The population continues to maintain a traditional lifestyle, trapping, hunting, and fishing.
