SXTA Trip to Maa’nulth territories

In February 2020, a group of SXTA leaders and staff went to Vancouver Island to visit the communities who came together to sign the Maa’nulth Final Agreement – Huu-ay-aht; Toquaht; Uchucklesaht; Yuułuʔiłʔath; and Ka:’yu:’k’t’h’/Che:k:tles7et’h’.

“Our trip to see the Maa’nulth group was actually to find out information from the treaty groups on their experience and also some of their expectations from that treaty process. . . What I found from their governance is that each of them were unique. It wasn’t a cookie cutter process. They each defined what governance meant to themselves.”

Chief Alice Thompson of of Leq’á:mel

SXTA trip to Nunatsiavut

In January 2020, Tzeachten Chief Derek Epp and staff members visited Nunatsiavut, Labrador to learn about that nation’s governance model.

“[Nunatsiavut has] six different communities, similar in style to what we have proposed with individual communities who still operate independently. But they also come together as a collective national government to take on various jurisdictions and issues at a national level.”

Chief Derek Epp
