Lower Post

Lower Post is a Tahltan, First Nations community in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, located on Highway 97, the Alaska Highway, approximately 15 miles South-East of Watson Lake, Yukon. Its historical mile designation is Mile 620.
Early fur traders named it Lower Post to distinguish between the upper and lower Liard trading posts.

Before Lower Post became a community it served as a fishing spot, a crossing and a meeting place. Because many different indigenous people stopped for trading, the community still has a diverse ethnic make-up today.

One of the aboriginal languages spoken in Lower Post is Kaska, of which there are very few fluent speakers.

According to the 2006 Census approximately 113 people live in Lower Post.
