Sinixt Territory

Sinixt Territory is land in which the collective sinixt land title is held communally and with cultural responsibilities by our people as dictated by whuplak'n (natural law) and smum iem (women's council) and governed as the collective Sinixt Nation. A British Columbia Supreme Court Land Claim was filed in 2008 by Sinixt Nation representatives on behalf of the collective rights of all Sinixt descendants in regards to the lands described as Sinixt Territory . Corporations, Provincial and Federal governments and their agents and employees are required to consult with the Sinixt Nation in regards to developments and business operations and land use and resource extraction within Sinixt Territory as stated by both international and domestic law.  Please see our "Maps" section for other historical maps of Sinixt Territory.
