Historically the Chipewyan were somewhat allied to the southerly Cree and warred against Inuit and Dene peoples to the north of their lands.

The Dene Suline language is part of the Athabaskan linguistic group - those First Nations whose name for themselves is a cognate of the word Dene ("people"): Denésoliné (or Dënesųłiné). The name Chipewyan is, like many people of the Canadian prairies, of Algonquian origin. It is derived from the Plains Cree name for them, Cīpwēyān (ᒌᐻᔮᐣ) - "pointed skin", from cīpwāw (ᒌᐚᐤ) "to be pointed"; and wayān (ᐘᔮᐣ) - a skin or hide - a reference to the cut and style of Chipewyan parkas. Many Chipewyan believe that the name is in some way derogatory, but these sorts of etymological beliefs about names are common among Canadian First Nations and not necessarily true. (See Eskimo for an example.) Dene Suline (also Dëne Sųłiné, Dene Sųłiné, Chipewyan, Dene Suliné, Dëne Suliné, Dene Soun’liné) is the language spoken by the Chipewyan people of central Canada (parts of Alberta, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Saskatchewan) and is also called Dene. ...

Despite the superficial similarity of the names, the Chipewyan are not related to the Chippewa or Ojibwa. The Ojibwa, Aanishanabe or Chippewa (also Ojibwe, Ojibway, Chippeway, Anishinaabe, or Anishinabek) are the largest group of Native Americans/First Nations north of Mexico, including Métis. ...


An important historic Chipewyan is Thanadelthur ("Marten Jumping"), a young woman who early in the 18th century helped her people to establish peace with the Cree, and to get involved with the fur trade (Steckley 1999).

Human History of Northern Saskatchewan (3177 words)
The Chipewyans of this region, then, lived in the protohistoric period for almost a century, from about 1620 to l7l7, in receipt of some European technological items but in the absence of Europeans in their territory.
The Chipewyans were known to the traders on the Hudson Bay as early as the 1680s; however, the first European known to have travelled into Chipewyan territory was William Stewart, in the winter of 1715-16.
Stewart's mission was to establish peace between the Chipewyans and the Crees and to persuade the Chipewyans to become involved in the fur trade.
