This page lists governing bodies of the Indigenous communities in the Lillooet area.

St’át’imc Nation Governance

The nation is made up of many communities, but could be divided into the Lower St’át’imc (located in and around the Mount Currie area). the Upper St’át’imc (located in and around the Lillooet area) and the Tsala’lhmec or Lexalexamux (located in the area of Seton and Anderson Lake). Each have distinct dialects and band councils that serve their people.

In 1998 a St’át’imc Chiefs Council was formed so communities could work collectively to advocate on political topics, including title and rights issues. Five of the northern St’át’imc communities (Sekw’el’was, Tsal’alh, Ts’kw’aylaxw, Xaxli’p, and Xwísten) are also served by the Lillooet Tribal Council (NGO), and five of the southern Stl’alt’imx communities (Líl’wat, N’Quatqua, Samahquam, Skatin, Xa’xtsa) are also served by the Lower Stl’atl’imx Tribal Council.
