Thlingchadinne Indians of Canada

Thlingchadinne, signifying "dog-flank people." Also called:

Atticmospicayes or Attimospiquaies, by La Potherie, and said to mean "dog-ribs."
Dog Ribs, popular English name from their own designation.
Flancs-de-Chien or Plats-Côtes-de-Chien, French name derived from their own designation.
Lintcanre, nickname applied by their congeners.

Connections. The Thlingchadinne belonged to the Athapascan linguistic stock.

Location. Between Great Bear Lake and Great Slave Lake but not extending to the Mackenzie River.

Subdivisions

Petitot (1891) gives the following divisions:
Lintchanre, north and east of the northern arm of Great Slave Lake.
Takfwelottine, southeast of Great Bear Lake and at the source of Coppermine River.
Tsantieottine, on La Martre Lake and River.
Tseottine, along the south shore of Great Bear Lake.

History. The name of the Thlingchadinne appears as early as 1744. It is said that they were gradually forced northwest by the Cree but it is probable that this was true of only a part of them, the greater portion having occupied approximately the same territories. Their later history is bound up with that of the Hudson's Bay Company, the purveyors of European civilization to most of the Indians of northwestern Canada.

Population. Mooney (1928) estimated that in 1670 there were 1,250 Indians of this tribe. In 1858 Ross (1858) gave their total population as 926. Morice (1906) estimated 1,150.
