The Tłı̨chǫ (, ) people, sometimes spelled Tlicho and also known as the Dogrib, are a Dene First Nations people of the Athabaskan-speaking ethnolinguistic group living in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The name Dogrib is an English adaptation of their own name, (or ) – “Dog-Flank People”, referring to their fabled descent from a supernatural dog-man. Like their Dene neighbours they called themselves oft simply (“person”, “human”) or (“People, i.e. Dene People”). The Tłı̨chǫ’s land is known as (or ). On the 1682 Franquelin map, Dogrib was recorded as “Alimousp[i]goiak” (from Cree , “Dog-Flanks”). There are now six settlements with Dogrib populations or mostly of Dogrib background: Behchoko(formerly Rae-Edzo), Whatì (Lac la Martre), Gamèti (Rae Lakes), Wekweeti (Snare Lake), Dettah, and N’Dilo (a subcommunity of Yellowknife, known by the Tłįchǫ as – “where the money is”). The or Dogrib language belongs to the Athabaskan languages, which are part of the Na-Dené languages family. The dialect spoken in the communities of Dettah and N’Dilo developed from intermarriage between Yellowknives and Tłįchǫ.
