  1. Chipewyan

    The Chipewyan are an aboriginal Dene people of the Athabaskan-speaking ethnolinguistic group, whose ancestors were the peoples who left the archaeological traces of the Taltheilei Shale Tradition. They are part of the Northern Athabascan group of peoples. The French-speaking missionaries to the northwest of the Red River Colony referred to the Chipewyan people as Montagnais in their documents written in French. Montagnais therefore has often been mistakenly translated to Montagnais, which refers to the Montagnais of northern Quebec and not the Dene.
