Heritage + Culture Overview
The Heritage and Culture of the St’át’imc Nation is important to our identity and deserves protecting. Our teams works to protect, preserve, and manage all aspects of St’át’imc Heritage in the territory.
Our focus involves monitoring impacts from industry to heritage sites, identifying unrecorded heritage sites and monitoring known sites.
The Heritage Team strives to provide heritage work experience for St’át’imc and to work collaboratively with the St’át’imc communities to support their protection priorities.
