The Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council (NNTC) was established in the early 1980’s to protect and promote the title and rights of the Nlaka’pamux Nation. This remains the mandate of the NNTC. The principles and disciplined approach of the NNTC have remained consistent over time. Nlaka’pamux title and rights are communal in nature and are shared by all members of the Nation. With our title and rights come the responsibility to care for the land and resources for future generations.
The work of the NNTC ranges from teaching young children Nlaka’pamuchin (the language), to managing the fishery on the river, to taking legal cases to the Supreme Court of Canada. Indigenous title and rights are under constant threat. The NNTC welcomes the active participation of all Nlaka’pamux to join in the protection and promotion of our Nlaka’pamux title and rights.
