Investing with N'Quatqua Band



Region:  Lower Mainland/Southwest

Nation:  St'át'imc

N’Quatqua was established as a Reserve under the Indian Act in September of 1858. N'Quatqua Band Office has been providing services to our Membership since our founding in 1987. It is our mission to promote and encourage families to create and maintain a healthy community. We support the development of self-governance while respecting our relationship with the land, culture and language. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to honour and respect our lands and resources through a holistic approach. We will be committed to a strong, loving, healthy and sustainable community. That will have a consistent approach to education, culture and language. That we will have a self governance system that will allow us to grow and meet our needs. The Declaration of the Lillooet Tribe is an important document in the history of relations between First Nations and the governments of the Dominion of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. Signed in Spences Bridge on May 10, 1911 by a committee of the chiefs of the St'at'imc peoples, taken down by anthropologist and local resident James Teit, it is an assertion of sovereignty over traditional territories as well as a protest against recent alienations of land by settlers at Seton Portage, British Columbia.

Like the Nisga’s Declaration and other documents from the same period, the Declaration of the Lillooet Tribe points to the rising organization of native politicians in the lead-up to the Great War, climaxing in the federal government's 1922 Potlatch Law, which banned the potlatch any assemblies of more than three First Nations males as a political meeting.

Today the Declaration of the Lillooet Tribe is on the table as part of the St’at’imc position, but the St’at’imc are not part of the formal treaty process as other nations elsewhere in the province are. The smaller bands of the lower Lillooet River broke off from the Lillooet Tribal Council in order to take part in the treaty process, and are now incorporated as the In-SHUCK-ch Nation.

That group included the N’Quatqua First Nation at D’arcy on Anderson Lake but they are now independent of both organizations and are completely self-governing, though as with the In-SHUCK-ch maintaining cultural and family links with the other communities of the St’at’imc peoples.
