Our community of Déline/Where the River Flows, in the Sahtu region of the Northwest Territories, is home to approximately 650 Dene, Métis and nonaboriginal people. It is the only human settlement on Sahtu/Great Bear Lake, the largest lake in Canada and ninth largest in the world in terms of surface area (31,326 km) and volume. Situated within the Arctic Circle, it is the largest lake in the world to exist in a relatively pristine condition despite historical uranium mining impacts. The Sahtugot’ine/Great Bear Lake people have been living with the chronic environmental, health, economic, and social impacts of the mine that operated at Port Radium on the eastern shores of Great Bear Lake. Originally mined for radium in the 1930s and later for uranium ore, all of which was shipped and utilized in the atomic bomb on Hiroshima during World War II, the mine site and surrounding area is now radioactive.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2004; 63(1):102-104)
