Fort McPherson Metis Scrip Claims
Fort McPherson (Teet'lit Zheh “A
t the head of the waters”
) was originally the site of aHudson’s Bay Company that was named for “Murdoch McPherson”. It is a town locatedin theInuvik Regionof the Northwest Territorieson the east bank of thePeel River and is 121 km (75 mi) south of Inuvik on theDempster Highway. The Hudson Bay Company established a post at the current location in 1840 and eightyears later the area was named after Murdoch McPherson, the chief trader for thecompany. Four years later a Loucheux Indian village moved to the area and Father Grollier set up an Anglican Mission in 1860. In 1903 the RCMP built a detachment postand regularly handled the patrols through the MacKenzie Mountains via the Peel River from Dawson City to Fort McPherson.
