With an area of 11,031 square miles (28,570 square km), the Great Slave Lake is the fifth largest lake in North America. It is located in the Northwest Territories, Canada, near the Alberta border. It is ice-free only four months out of the year.

The Great Slave Lake and the Lesser Slave Lake are named for the Slave Indians, a tribe of Indians indigenous to the region, and not for what you might think of when you hear the word 'slave.'
