The lands of the Tahltan Nation lie in rural Northern British Columbia to the east of Coastal Tlingit territories.  Tahltan lands encompasses the legendary Stikine River and its tributaries. It is fascinating to note that despite the great geographical distance, the Tahltan language is related to Chipewyan, Navajo, Sarsi, and Apache. Each of these Athapaskan languages are similar enough that speakers of each can often understand each other.
