The Yellowknives, Yellow Knives, Copper Indians, Red Knives or T'atsaot'ine are Aboriginal peoples of Canada, one of the five main groups of the Dene First Nation that live in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The name, which is also the source for the later community of Yellowknife, derives from the colour of the tools made from local copper deposits.
Though the bands were historically distinct, the Dene Yellowknives are now absorbed into the Dene Chipewyan people.
