• From the Tl’azt’en Nation web site:

    The Tl’azt’en Nation, or “People by the Edge of the Bay”, is a First Nations community situated in north-central British Columbia, Canada. We know ourselves as Dakelh (we travel by water) but Europeans called us “Carriers”. Our language, Dakelh, is part of the Athapaskan language group.

    The population of Tl’azt’en Nation today is around 1793. Of these, approximately 543 live on reserve, one of the main communities of Tache, Binche and Dzitl’ainli (Middle River), and K’uzche. Tache, the largest of the communities, is situated 65 km north of Fort St. James at the mouth of the Tache River on Stuart Lake. Binche is 25 km from Fort St. James and at the mouth of the Binche River which drains Binche Lake into Stuart Lake. Dzitl’ainli is on Leo Creek Road along side Trembleur Lake. K’uzche is on the Tache River.

    Our main administrative offices are in Tache. Tache also houses our elementary school, daycare, head start, and health office.
