In 1792, Alexander Mackenzie was one of the first fur traders and explorers to document his visit to the region around Lesser Slave Lake in northern Alberta. The Cree had named the huge body of water "Slave Lake" which meant "stranger" referring to those who occupied the area before the Cree. The lake would later become known as Lesser Slave Lake.
