Investing with Skwah First Nation



Region:  Lower Mainland/Southwest

Nation:  Sto:lo

Skwah First Nation is one of the larger First Nation communities in Sto:lo Territory. While the current village of Skwah sits just up from historic Chilliwack Landing; our original lands were where Five Corners in downtown Chilliwack now exists.

Skwah FN is a vibrant community, with 238 of the 505 members living within its borders. There are a variety of private and public enterprises such as the famous Greg Moore Raceway which holds Kart racing on weekends throughout the year weather permitting. We also feature a mix of agricultural and residential land and it is not uncommon to see someone riding horseback through the community.

Chilliwack Landing Preschool has been teaching children from the community and surrounding areas for 33 years, fostering the values of self-worth & self-preservation through the cultural connection within our children's family traditions, elder teachings and community involvement. Our curriculum is all about ensuring our young children reach their full potential through the outstanding care and educational programming. We are an accredited school open to the community of Chilliwack and Sardis.

A great source of pride for Skwah FN is the River Spirit Canoe Club. Started and run by the Williams family, members compete and win regularly throughout BC and the north western states. They also work closely with McCammon School where students are introduced to traditional First Nations cultural teaching and experiences.

Skwah First Nation also encompasses other lands: Skwahli which is situated across the slough, Skwahla which sits at the base of Little Mountain, and Schelowat which is agricultural land out in Rosedale. Skwah FN also shares the administration of the Grass Indian Reserve #5, Pekw’Xe:yles, and Skumalasph IR#16.
