      Yellowknife, N.W.T. - A well-known and respected Dogrib interpreter from the Northwest Territories has died.

      Francis Blackduck was 57-years-old. He was found dead in a Yellowknife hotel room on Saturday. N.W.T. Chief coroner Percy Kinney says there's no evidence of foul play. The body has been sent to Edmonton for an autopsy.

      Blackduck had been, most recently, working on environmental issues including the clean up of the Colomac mine and monitoring the Ekati diamond mine.

      He was one of the founders of the Indian Brotherhood, which preceded the Dene Nation.
