Welcome to TZEACHTEN FIRST NATION

Who We Are

Tzeachten is independent First Nation band located in Chilliwack, BC, towards the Vedder River. Our traditional name for Tzeachten is Chi'yaqtel, in the traditional language Halq'emeylem, which means 'the place of the fish weir'. We are home to over 500 members, with about 50% living on reserve. Tzeachten is apart of the Stó:lō Nation.

Tzeachten lands include many economic development properties, including the Vedder Crossing Plaza, the Englewood development, the Tzeachten Sports Field, and the Tzeachten Community Hall. For more information about us, click here!
