Behchoko is a small community on the Mackenzie Highway surrounded by boreal forest and lakes. It is the largest Tlicho community and is the base for education and several government structures in the Tlicho region. Behchoko is actually two communities that used to be called Rae and Edzo. The newly named Behchoko is only about a hundred kilometres from the territory’s capital of Yellowknife to give it access urban amenities. The name Behchoko means, “big knife place” in the Tlicho language and is thought to be due to the trade of items such as knives in the settlement.
