Prophet River First Nation
"Prophet River" is the name of an Athabaskan First Nations community of British Columbia, Canada.
The Prophet River Band is primarily made up of Dane-zaa (Beaver) people.
The Prophet River people are English speakers today, but some people, especially elders, also speak their
native Beaver language. In Beaver, the name of the Prophet River Nation is Dene Tsaa tse K'Nai.
