History / Biographical
The Office of the Wet’suwet’en serves as the central office for the Wet’suwet’en Nation, in whose traditional territory (yin tah) Smithers and the Bulkley Valley are located. It is not a band council or a traditional governing body, but a political non-profit organization directed by the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs. It was established in 1994 after the splitting of the Gitxsan-Wet’suwet’en Tribal Council, which had represented the two Nations during Delgamuukw vs. British Columbia. Based out of Smithers, the Office covers the communities of Hagwilget, Witset (Moricetown), Browman Lake, Skin Tyee, and Nee Tahi Buhn. It offers services relating to Lands and Resources, Fisheries and Wildlife, Human and Social Services, and Governance. Its vision statement reads: “We are proud, progressive Wet’suwet’en dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of our culture, traditions, and territories; working as one for the betterment of all.”
