Our National Government


The Tŝilhqot'in National Government was established in 1989 to meet the needs and represent the Tŝilhqot’in Nation and Tŝilhqot'in communities of Tl'etinqox, ʔEsdilagh, Yuneŝit'in, Tŝideldel, Tl'esqox and Xeni Gwet'in in their strive to re-establish a strong political government structure.

The communities work as a Nation to continue the fight of our six war Chiefs of 1864. The war Chiefs stood against the Canadian Government in an effort to gain Tŝilhqot'in Aboriginal Rights and Title to the lands we call Tŝilhqot'in.

TNG has a dedicated obligation to its people to establish programs that reflect Tŝilhqot'in culture and customs in every aspect of governance.

The role of TNG administration is to carry out the wishes of Tŝilhqot'in citizens through their respected Chieftainship. The TNG continues to advocate on behalf of all Tŝilhqot'in citizens regardless of the many labels Foreign Governments place on its membership.
