Tuwı́ Tué / Mahony Lake Massacre Site
In December of 1835 three employees of the Hudson's Bay Company murdered eleven Dene men, women, and children who were employed by the Hudson's Bay Company to provide meat and fish. The three men were all tried by Canadian courts, with one being sentenced for hanging and another being set free for giving testimony against his accomplice. This story is important for the judicial history of Canada as it was the only offence ever tried by a Canadian court during the Hudson's Bay licensed monopoly over the Indian Territories.
