Executive Summary

Since time immemorial, fishing has played a significant role in the lives of the St’át’imc. We have always considered our waterways, including our fish and fish habitats to be sacred; and have relied on our freshwater resources to support our traditional, spiritual, social and economic way of life. Salmon is a sacred gift from the Creator that gives, sustains and nurtures our communities and families.
