The Dene were the first people to live in the Northwest Territories following the glacial retreat about 14,500 years ago. The word “Dene”, when translated, is broken down into two words: “De” meaning flow and “Ne” meaning Mother Earth.
Today, most Dene live in communities; however, they still maintain a close relationship to the land.
Dene Peoples include the Chipewyan (Denesuline), Dogrib, Yellowknife, Slavey and the Sahtu.
