Valley Vision | towards a comprehensive vision for the future of the Bulkley Valley

First Nations

The Bulkley Valley is mostly within the traditional territory of the Wet’suwet’en. Between Moricetown and the Hazeltons, the Bulkley River enters the traditional territory of the Gitxsan.

First Nations have important roles in any planning activity in the Bulkley Valley. They have detailed knowledge that comes from traditional sources and from recent stewardship efforts. They have close ties to the land and their interests could be affected by land use plans. First Nations also have aboriginal rights which must be respected during the planning of any activity that may affect those rights.

    Historically, Hagwilget began as a Wet’suwet’en village. Its population today is about half Wet’suwet’en and half Gitxsan. Therefore, Hagwilget Village Council (the band council which represents the village) should be listed under the Wet’suwet’en First Nation community too on the First Nations webpage.

    Note from Webmaster: I made the change. Thank you for your advice.

    Does BVEDA purport to represt the ec dev interests of the many first nation communities within the bulkley valley district? Please outline the boundaries of the bulkley valley district. Who sits on this board?

    Valley Vision Webmaster's note: Valley Vision does not have any information about the Bulkley Valley Economic Development Association yet. The association's website www.bveda.cais still under construction as of January, 2011.

    I am the Economic Development Officer for the BVEDA. The service area for the BVEDA encompasses Regional District of Bulkley Nechako Area A plus the Village of Moricetown. The board is made up of local business people from the Bulkley Valley and the Office of the Wet’suwet’en.
