The Sayisi Dene, (People of the East), are Chipewyan, a Dene First Nation Aboriginal peoples of Canada group living in northern Manitoba. They are members of the "Sayisi Dene First Nation (Tadoule Lake, Manitoba)" (58°42′43″N 98°28′50″WCoordinates: 58°42′43″N 98°28′50″W) and are notable for living a nomadic caribou-hunting and gathering existence.
In 1956, the Sayisi Dene residing at Little Duck Lake (at 59°24′46.09″N 97°44′1.2″W ) in northem Manitoba were relocated to Churchill. The relocation of the Sayisi Dene is viewed as one of the most grievous errors committed by the federal government.
