“Since the beginning of time, our people have lived on the lands that the Creator provided for our ancestors.” 

We lived by our traditional systems of governance that sustained us and our lands and resources for thousands of years. Our society governed all forms of environmental, social and political relations through a sophisticated system of traditional laws, as is our traditional way. It is from this proud history that Sliammon derives our inherent right to self-government.
