We are the P’egp’íg’lha of the St’át’imc Nation. The Creator placed us here and that connection to our land can never be broken. The traditional ways, values and laws of our ancestors are held in the St’át’imc language and are written on the land. Our Elders have passed them down in the stories to the children and grandchildren since the beginning. We are committed to working together to build our community in a good way that is based on the teachings of our ancestors
In September 2002, the P’egp’íg’lha Council came into being at a community ceremony when the families stood up their representatives.
The community pulled away from being governed solely by an Indian Act system but did not do away with the elected Chief and Council system because of INAC’s programs and services.
