• From the Saik’uz First Nation web site

    Saik’uz First Nation is a community of approximately 400 with an additional 600 members living throughout British Columbia and Canada. Its traditional territory is located near the geographical centre of BC, with the leading community situated on the east end of Nulki Lake, 14 kilometres south of the town of Vanderhoof. A member of the greater Dakelh (Carrier) Nation, Saik’uz derives its name from the Dakelh word meaning “on the sand”, which refers to the sandy soil on which the main community is settled. Saik’uz has a rich tradition of trapping, hunting, fishing, and medicine, and is currently working to revitalize its language in-community and to develop sustainable economic and cultural growth.
