Names: "Hare Indian" or "Hareskin Indian" are English names for their tribe; in their own language,
the people call themselves K'ahsho Got'ine
(also spelled K'asho Got'ine, Kawchottine, Kawchodinne, and other ways.)
The Hares have also been known as the North Slavey, due to their close association with the Slavey tribe.
Today they commonly use the more general term Sahtu Dene (also spelled Sahtú),
which refers to several related bands including the Hares, the Delines,
and the Mountain Dene.
