** The Northwest Territories formerly were divided into Franklin (626), Keewatin (695), and Mackenzie (643) Districts. 
With the creation of the new Territory of Nunavut (640) the BBL has discontinued
the use of the old districts and is using solely Northwest Territories (643) and Nunavut
(640).  Bandit, Band Manager and historical records have been updated.
