The traditional crafts of the Dene people were much more than works of art. Each had a function, whether it was to carry water or keep a person warm. Using both traditional and modern materials and following ancestral techniques, the artisans of the Dehcho region today still create beautiful Dene crafts.
Tourists to the region purchase handmade birch bark baskets, beautiful jewelry, beaded moccasins and warm mukluks to take home as souvenirs or to add to their collections. The towns of Fort Providence, Jean Marie River, Fort Liard and Enterprise are well known for the quality of the crafts produced and sold there.
