Location of Notikewin Alberta

Notikewin is a hamlet in northern Alberta, Canada within the County of Northern Lights.[1]

It is located along the Mackenzie Highway (Highway 35), approximately 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) north of the Town of Manning.

The name derives from nôtinikewin, the Cree word for "battle".[2][3] The name is shared with the Notikewin River, and is lent to the Notikewin Member, a stratigraphical unit of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
