Investing with Neskonlith Indian Band



Region:  Thompson/Okanagan

Nation:  Secwepemc

Neskonlith Indian Band was formed through the Colony of British Columbia when the Canadian government established the Indian Reserve system in the 1860s. The original Neskonlith Indian Band reserve which is known as the Neskonlith Douglas Reserve was named after Chief Neskonlith. These reserve lands were reduced without consent. The reserve was divided into three bands by the colonial government forming Adams Lake, Neskonlith and Little Shuswap Bands. The Neskonlith Indian Band was allotted three reserves, two near Chase, British Columbia, and one near Salmon Arm, British Columbia. The Band, is a member of the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council, and currently has around 619 members.


The main community is on Neskonlith Indian Reserve #1, on the South Thompson River just below Little Shuswap Lake, near Chase. (Total reserve lands consist of 2,786.7 hectares.)

The Neskonlith Indian Band is located in the Interior of British Columbia, Canada. It is on the outskirts of the small community of Chase, which has a population of about three thousand people.
