Wet'suwet'en is the name of a First Nations people of Canada, closely associated with the Babine tribe.
The Wet'suwet'en and Babine tribes speak dialects of the same language and live together on some of the same reserves, so although they
have historically been distinct nations, today many of the people consider themselves part of the same group. "Wet'suwet'en" is
also spelled Wetsuweten, Wetsuwet'en, or Wets'uwet'en. This tribal name comes from the Athabaskan name of a river that
runs through their territory in British Columbia.
