Image of a group of Tlicho men running a boat through rapids on the Slave River. The Tlicho people are a part of the Dene First Nations. Caption on photograph reads, "The boats are run in the channels of the river thereby avoiding the heavier swells in the main part of the river, which is a mile wide and almost impossible to run a boat through."
