"Nadot'en" is an alternate name for the Babine tribe of Canada. It is a native Athabaskan name, but its original meaning is not
known; it does not refer to anything other than the Babine people in modern usage (-t'en is a suffix meaning "people.")
It may have come from a place name. Other spellings of this name include Nadoten and Nadot'ene.
