Based on the wisdom of our Elders and ancestors, Nlaka'pamux leaders guide the Tribal Council in protection of title and rights, providing the vision for the future; they hold the government accountable for "the honour of the Crown"; interact with other Nations and Indigenous organizations; protect the land and resources; foster the language, culture and identity of the Nlaka'pamux.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the leaders who have gone before us. They protected Nlaka'pamux title and rights for future generations and provided the foundation for the exercise of jurisdiction.
NNTC leaders are supported by staff and technical teams. Leadership meets regularly. Leaders take direction from, and inform, their community members, recognizing title and rights are communal in nature and belong to all Nlaka'pamux.
