Ghosts of the Joe Henry

The Dempster (Joe Henry) Highway, in the Yukon, is the only road in Canada that crosses the Arctic Circle. It is the meeting of a man made entity and some of the most isolated landscapes on the planet. Locally, it is often referred to as “The Joe Henry Highway” in honour of Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Elder Joe Henry, who was instrumental in the construction of the highway that passes through their traditional lands.
