Established in the early 1980's, the Nlaka'pamux Nation Tribal Council (NNTC) was given the responsibility to protect and advance the title and rights of the Nlaka'pamux Nation. This mandate has not changed nor has the principled and disciplined approach of the NNTC. Nlaka'pamux title and rights, however, are not frozen in time and so the work and structure of the NNTC continue to evolve.

The NNTC is founded on the inherent rights of the Nlaka'pamux. The NNTC is not governed by the Indian Act and does not receive funding as a Tribal Council. The Indian Act does not define who we are. The Nlaka'pamux are defined by our culture, our language and our ties to the land.
The NNTC is guided by the wisdom of our ancestors and Elders, by the Nlaka'pamux Resolution on Natural Resources and by the fundamental law that if you take care of the land, the land will take care of you.
