Over the years, residents of the Northwest Territories have reenacted the fateful meeting of Akaitcho and Lieutenant Franklin at Old Fort Providence in August 1820. In March, recently discovered photographs from one such reenactment on Canada Day in 1984 were posted to the YK Memories page. A lively discussion ensued with even some original participants chiming in.

Incidentally, 1984 was a memorable year for the Northwest Territories with the first Papal Visit, hosting of the Arctic Winter Games, and the opening of the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre.
