Athabascan or Athapascan or Athapaskan is the name of a Native American people, also known as the Athabasca Indians or Athabaskes, and of their language family. Tribes that belong to the Athapascan group include the Apache, Chipewyan[?] (who are often considered the "true" Athabascas), Hupa[?], Navaho, Jicarilla[?], Kiowa[?], Kuchin[?], Lipan[?], Mescalero[?], Sarsi[?], and Taculli[?].

Anthropologists have identified a large group of languages within the Na-Dene language family spoken by peoples throughout the interior of Alaska and the interior of northwestern Canada, in northern California and southern Oregon, and in the American Southwest[?].
