Bloody Falls
Bloody Falls

Bloody Falls (oder Kogluktok) ist eine Stromschnelle in Nunavut, Kanada und liegt 15 km oberhalb der Mündung des Coppermine Rivers in den Arktischen Ozean.

Der britische Forscher Samuel Hearne benannte sie nach dem Bloody Falls Massacre, bei dem 1771 ca. 20 Menschen ums leben kamen. Kugluktuk, die nächstgelegene Siedlung, befindet sich fast 16 km entfernt. Bloody Falls wurde 1978 zur National Historic Site erklärt. Bei Bloody Falls fand man archäologische Fundstücke von Inuit, die dort vermutlich um 1300 v. Chr lebten. Die Inuit nutzen das Gebiet noch heute als Fisch-Camp.
