Non-Lillooet Tribal Council St'at'imc Groups

Other St'at'imcets-speaking groups within the traditional territory of the St'at'imc people are incorporated separately as

  • N'quatqua First Nation, at the farther end of Anderson Lake from Seton Portage,
  • In-SHUCK-ch Nation, on the lower Lillooet River south from Pemberton-Mount Currie.
    • Samahquam First Nation
    • Skatin First Nation (Skookumchuck Hot Springs)
    • Douglas First Nation (Port Douglas/Xa'xtsa).

The member bands of In-SHUCK-ch, plus the N'quatqua Band, comprise the Lower Stl'atl'imx Tribal Council. These were all formerly part of the Lillooet Tribal Council but being all smaller rural reserves opted out to make their own way through the land claims process, despite maintaining close family and cultural ties to the larger communities at Mount Currie and Lillooet.

Famous quotes containing the words groups, tribal and/or council:

    ... until both employers’ and workers’ groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about “ignorant” and “unfair” public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    Totem poles and wooden masks no longer suggest tribal villages but fashionable drawing rooms in New York and Paris.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
