Your Voice Our Future

We are the Lheidli T’enneh.

We have been leaders in the effort to have B.C. Aboriginal rights and land title recognized and in 2006, after years of negotiation, a Final Agreement was reached with the governments of Canada and British Columbia, and a Constitution was drafted that would allow the Lheidli T’enneh to govern ourselves.

In 2007, the membership of the Lheidli T’enneh voted on the Final Agreement and Constitution. The Constitution was accepted, but the Final Agreement was not.

See what people are asking about the Lheidli T’enneh Final Agreement Decision

  • Fort George IR#1 was a Reserve that included a Lheidli T’enneh village site. Located at the confluence of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers, our village was well-placed and was known for its prosperous fishing.

    The property was transferred on Nov. 18, 1911 and Lheidli T’enneh residing there had seven months to leave. Part of the land was used by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to build rail lines and a station. Other parts were resold as lots by the company at great profit. These Reserve lands, totalling almost 1,400 acres from which the city of Prince George grew, were worth far more than what Lheidli T’enneh were paid for them.

    Although not all agreed with the decision to sell, our people were relocated by the government and any who remained saw their homes destroyed by fire, forcing them to move.

  • The Lheidli T’enneh and British Columbia governments will work together to designate important cultural sites and geographic features as sites of cultural significance under the Heritage Conservation Act. These two governments will also work together to identify places to be renamed with Carrier names.
