Kakisa[pronunciation?] (Slavey language: K’agee[pronunciation?]; between the willows) is a "Designated Authority"[6] in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. The community is located on a lake of the same name, and is southeast of Fort Providence. Originally located at Tathlina Lake, the community moved, in 1962, to the present location in order to be closer to the Mackenzie Highway and is linked by a 13 km (8.1 mi) all-weather road.[7]
