The Dene Nation covers a large geographical area — from present day Alaska to the southern-most tip of North America. The Dene Nation has existed for over 30,000 years, with one language and many dialects: Gwich’in; Sahtu; Deh Cho; Tlicho; and, Akaitcho. The Dene have always been sustained by the land and all that it has to offer.
