Known as the Gateway to the Nuxalk Carrier Grease Trail” also known as the “Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail”, Nazko is rich in First Nations and Ranching culture.

The Nazko people, part of the Carrier Nation, are included as the original inhabitants of the north-central region of B.C since at least 2200 B.C. Carrier country is vast, stretching 500 kms from the Coast Mountains in the west to the Rocky Mountains in the east, and 300 kms from Takla Lake in the north to the Chilcotin plateau in the south. The terrain varies from the low, rolling hills along the Blackwater River in the south to the mountainous regions that border Carrier country to the west, north and east.

Nazko’s traditional language, Carrier, is part of the northern Athapaskan language family. Northern Athapaskan languages are spoken throughout the sub arctic region of northern and western Canada. The Carrier language is still actively used by the Nazko membership.

Much of the traditional lifestyle has changed with the introduction to western civilization. Nazko Logging is a highly successful business Enterprise that was established in the early 1980’s. Nazko has become reliant upon forestry activities that will provide employment, capacity development and revenue. In 1994, Nazko entered into the Treaty process as a means to have self-government, implementation of traditional law and governing policies that reflect the culture of the southern Carrier people. Enhancing the Treaty process, Nazko is dedicated to long term community planning.This “new way of doing business” ensures community engagement, consultation and participation, therefore success in self-governance.
