NorthSlavey (also known as Hare or Bearlake) and South Slavey (also known as Mountain or Slavey Proper) are considered to be separate languages by some linguists, dialects of the same language by others.
In older literature, the name of the language was spelt Slave; however, the connotations of this, along with the pronunciation of the homograph slave (the final e should be pronounced) have caused the change to Slavey instead.
Slavey was the native language spoken by the fictional band in the Canadian television series, North of 60.
NorthSlaveylanguage is spoken in the Mackenzie District along the middle Mackenzie River from Fort Norman north, around Great Bear Lake, and in the Mackenzie Mountains of the Canadian territory of Northwest Territories.
