Ancient time-honored values guide us to a secure and bountiful future
"Inside the Skeena River"
Our connection to the land, the rivers and the ocean is central to our social, cultural, and political life and helps maintain our ideologies as Kitsumkalum and as Tsimshian.
Our Chief and Matriarch names are attached to the land, defining the territories of our house groups and rooting us firmly in place.
Kitsumkalum is a strong, proud part of the Tsimshian Nation.
ON THE COAST
We have aboriginal rights to fish, harvest, gather and engage in cultural and spiritual activities throughout the coastal part of our territory.
This denial is more than an attempt to separate us from our lands and resources, it is an assault on who we are as people. We are supposed to be moving forward with Canada and British Columbia in a spirit of recognition and reconciliation. Instead we are met with denial and resistance.
