The original community of KTFN members were located at Tathlina Lake, but in 1962 relocated to what is now known as Kakisa. The community of Kakisa is connected to the Mackenzie Highway by a 13 km all-weather road.

KTFN’s registered Band membership was 75 in 2016 but not all members live in the Kakisa, and local residents say there are 30 people living in the community.
