Carrier Sekani Tribal Council

Carrier Sekani Tribal Council

The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (familiarly known as CSTC) is a tribal council representing eight First Nations in the central interior of British Columbia. It was originally known as the "Lakes District Tribal Council".

Member governments

Its current members are:

*Burns Lake Indian Band
*Nadleh Whut'en First Nation
*Nak'azdli Indian Band
*Saik'uz First Nation
*Stellat'en First Nation
*Takla Lake First Nation
*Tl'azt'en Nation
*Wet'suwet'en First Nation

Not all Carrier or Sekani bands belong to CSTC. The four Blackwater Carrier bands, Ulkatcho Indian Band, Lhoosk'us Dene, Nazko First Nation, and Red Bluff Indian Band, belong to Carrier-Chilcotin Tribal Council. The other bands are independent.

Chief and Councillors

CSTC is governed by a Chief, elected at large by the individual members, and a Council consisting of one representative of each of the member bands. Social services are provided by Carrier Sekani Family Services, a now separate organization spun-off by CSTC. The Yinka Dene Language Institute, charged with linguistic and cultural matters, is indirectly controlled by CSTC, which appoints the majority of its Board of Directors.

ocial, Educational and Cultural Programs and Facilities

In addition to representing its members in treaty negotiations with British Columbia and Canada and in various other dealings, CSTC provides technical and professional services to its members in such areas as fisheries, education, economic development, community and infrastructure planning, forestry, and financial management.
