Tsilhqot'in National Government was established in 1989 to meet the needs
and represent the Tsilhqot'in communities of Tlet'inqox, ?Esdilagh, Yunesit'in,
Tsi Del Del 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 Tsilhqot'in
Aboriginal Rights and Title to the lands we call Tsilhqot'in.
TNG has a dedicated
obligation to its people to establish programs that reflect Tsilhqot'in
Culture and Customs in every aspect of governance.
The role of TNG administration
is to carry out the wishes of Tsilhqot'in members through their respected
Chieftainship. The TNG continues to advocate on behalf of all Tsilhqot'in
members regardless of the many labels Foreign Governments place on its
