Dene Tha First Nation


About The Dene Tha’

The Dene Tha’ (or People Common to the Territory, or Common Peoples) are divided into three separate communities located in Northwest Alberta – Bushe River, Meander River, and Chateh (formerly known as Assumption). Total acreage is 74,224. These reserves are accessible in different ways, such as winter road, road, water, and rail.

Today, approximately 1800 people live on the reserves and about another 600 live off the reserves. The predominant linguistic group is Athapaskan Dene. Governance is by a chief and an eight-member council all of who are elected by members via a custom electoral system.
