The Tl'etinqox-t'in are a First Nations people in the Chilcotin District of the Canadian province of British Columbia. They are a subgroup of the Tshilhqot'in people and reside near the community of Alexis Creek, an unincorporated settlement and Indian Reserve community on Highway 20 near Riske Creek.

Their band government is called the Tl'etinqox-t'in Government Office. The name of their main reserve, Anahim's Flat Indian Reserve No. 1, in the Chilcotin language is Tl'etinqox, meaning "river flats", although it is commonly known as Anaham (which is used also for the whole Alexis Creek locality). Anaham should not be confused with Anahim Lake, which is a different community and has a different band government, the Ulkatcho First Nation, who are Dakelh (Carrier). The name of Anahim Lake in Tsilhqot'in, however, is also Tl'etinqox.[1]
