The main enemies of the Dogrib were the Cree, Chipewyan, and Yellowknife. Which resulted in large massacres, and later on peace treaties.

The people lived mainly off of caribou hunting and in 1852 the Dogrib started to partake in the fur trade until a rivalry massacre in Yellowknife stopped the english and other native groups from trading with them.
