St'át'imc Territory

The St'át'imc (pronounced Stat-lee-um) Nation is composed of eleven distinct and self-governing communities. The St'át'imc are the original inhabitants of the territory which extends north to Churn Creek and to South French Bar; northwest to the headwaters of the Bridge River; north and east toward Hat Creek Valley; east to the Big Slide; south to the island on Harrison Lake and west of the Fraser River to the headwaters of the Lillooet River, Ryan River and Black Tusk.

The six northern St'át'imc communities (Sekw'el'was, T'ít'q'et, Tsal'alh, Ts'kw'aylaxw, Xaxli'p, and Xwísten) are also served by the Lillooet Tribal Council, and the five southern Stl'alt'imx communities (Líl'wat, N'Quatqua, Samahquam, Skatin, Xa'xtsa) are served by the Lower Stl'atl'imx Tribal Council. VCH serves these five communities in the region.
