The Vision

Tzeachten First Nation remains the keepers of our traditional territories, this responsibility being passed on to us by our ancestors and exercised through sound cultural, environmental, and socio-economic stewardship.

Our Core Values

We are grounded in culture never losing track of who we are, where we have been and where we are going as Tzeachten people.

We believe that respect is the foundation for all that we do.

We realize that transparent and accountable communication leads to an informed and engaged membership and staff.

We practice a strong work ethic, role-model attitudes and behaviors that inspire those around us.

We understand that a safe and active community promotes healthy individuals and families.

In the Halq’emeylem language Tzeachten (Ch’iyaqtel) means ‘the place of the fish weir’. The Tzeachten people originate from the Ch-ihl-kway-uhk Tribe and is politically affiliated with the Sto:lo Nation.
