OUR COMMUNITY

Denesoline Community Development Corporation, a fully owned subsidiary of Denesoline Corporation, is dedicated to serving the community of Lutsel K'e. 

 

Lutsel K’e (pronounced “Loot-sel-kay”) is located on the south shore of Great Slave Lake near its eastern end. Until 1992, it was known as Snowdrift. The name means “place of the Lutsel (a small fish that today is known as a cisco). The community has been on its present site since 1954 when homes from the original community site a few kilometres away were moved to the present site on Christie Bay.

 

Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation (LKDFN) members support each other – it has always been that way. In Lutsel K’e, everyone is family. Often, when someone hunts a moose, or takes a large catch of fish, they give the meat to elders and share it with the whole town. They are proud to be a community.
