The Sekani Language

Sekani is spoken in Northeastern British Columbia starting a little bit north of Prince George, around Williston Lake and westward across the northern reaches of Takla Lake.

Sekani people call themselves /tsek'ehne/ or /tθek'ehne/ depending on dialect, both meaning ``people on the rocks''. The usual English term is an anglicization of this.

Sekani is an Athabaskan language.
