Nee Tahi Buhn Band is an independent band.The Nee Tahi Buhn Band is part of the Athapaskan language family.The Nee Tahi Buhn Band people speak the Wet’suwet’en dialect of the BulkleyValley/Lakes District langauge.
We participate in the balhats (potlatch) system which is organized by matrilineal clans. It is our way to take care of business. Economic, social, judicial and spiritual activities revolve around the balhats.
The Clans of the Nee Tahi Buhn Band are Gilseyhu (Big Frog), Laksilyu (Small Frog), Gitdumden (Wolf/Bear), Laksamashu (Fireweed) and Tsayu (Beaver). In the feast hall the Laksamashu and Tsayu work together.
