CHESLATTA, 50 km south of BURNS LAKE between Cheslatta and FRANÇOIS lakes, is a rural agricultural district settled in about 1940 by MENNONITES from the prairies. The Cheslatta lakeshore, traditional territory of the Cheslatta Carrier people, was flooded in 1952 for ALCAN's KEMANO power project. The name is a DAKELH word and refers to a "small mountain."
