Below are a list of reports that provider further information concerning the initiatives that we are pursuing on behalf of our members and community.

A report on the work of the Socio-Cultural Working Group, as discussed at the Tahltan Leadership Forum, held March 15-16, 2012. 

The Socio-Cultural Working Group is steering a Health and Wellness Strategy to centralize and improve healthcare services across Tahltan Nation.

Report of the Tahltan Mining Symposium, April 4 - 6, 2003

The Tahltan people are facing unprecedented development in their traditional territory. There is a strong need for an employment and training strategy.

This sourcebook grew out of the exhibit Mehodihi: Well-Known Traditions of Tahltan People, which opened on October 18, 2003 at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA). It is the first ever Tahltan exhibit! Mehodihi means “Well-Known” in the Tahltan language.

Tahltan Nation Shared Decision-making Agreement is a government-to-government agreement between the Province and Tahltan Nation, signed on March 14, 2013. It establishes a collaborative framework for ongoing land and resource decision-making in Tahltan traditional territory in northwest B.C. Encompassing 90,000 square kilometers, the territory includes many environmentally and culturally significant areas.

The Socio-Cultural Working Group is devoting sustained attention and resources to the challenge of revitalizing our Tahltan language. There are less than 30 fluent speakers remaining. But an exciting plan is in place to reverse this trend.

My name is Annita McPhee. I am a member of the Tahltan Nation, and President of the Tahltan Central Council, which is a governing body of the Tahltan People. I am pleased to make this presentation to Professor James Anaya, UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, on behalf of the Tahltan People.
