Chief & Council

Background

The Chief and Council are elected representatives of band members. They are responsible for local administration of community services for residents on band controlled land, including housing, roads, sanitation and welfare. The council is also responsible for the interests of band membership with regard to matters affecting Aboriginal Rights, Treaty Rights, band capital and revenue funds in trust. They may also deal with matters involving non-band members with respect to business and industrial interests, such as the regulation of land leases, royalties, lumber and tourism. Band government consists of a Chief and four Councillors.

 

The band officials officially serve a two year term.
