About the Yellowknives Dene First Nation
The Yellowknives, or T'atsaot'ine are one of the five main groups of the Dene indigenous people that live in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The name, which is also the source for the later City of Yellowknife, derives from the colour of the tools made from local copper deposits.
