"Takla" is an alternate tribal name of the Babine tribe of Canada, and is also sometimes used to refer to one of the dialects of the
Babine-Witsuwit'en language. The word Takla is shortened from a native Athabaskan village name, meaning "at the end of the lake."
One of the Babine-Witsuwit'en bands today is known as the Takla Lake First Nation.
