Lutsel K'e, NT, Canada, is home to several hundred Dene people who speak Chipewyan and who have a close affinity with a harsh land that provides caribou, lake trout, moose, black bear, grizzly bear, ciscoes (tullibee, lake herring), cranberries, blueberries,mushrooms, spruce, pine and lots of fresh air and water. Beautiful scenery of water and hills completes this pristine environment. The school provides K-10 education. Some students attend school in Ft. Smith for higher grades.

Local transportation is via wheeled vehicles within a few mile of town and aeroplanes year round, and snowmobile in winter and motorboat in summer. NTCL provides barge service in summer, bringing in heavy freight. Air Tindi provides regular air service and charter to the airport YLK and the dock.
