Tuktoyaktuk is the anglicized form of the native Inuvialuit place-name, meaning “resembling a caribou.” According to legend, a woman looked on as some caribou, common at the site, waded into the water and turned into stone, or became petrified. Today, reefs resembling these petrified caribou are said to be visible at low tide along the shore of the town.
