TAHLTAN

Tahltan 2

Tahltan traditional territory encompasses a massive 93,500 square kilometer area in Northwestern British Columbia. The western boundary of territory runs parallel to the Alaska/BC border, with the northern boundary running north into part of the Yukon. The eastern boundary includes the Spatsizi Plateau and the sacred headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena rivers, while the southern boundary lies just south of Bell II. The Tahltan people make up over half of the residents in the territory, most of whom live in three main communities: Telegraph Creek, Dease Lake and Iskut.

There are five Timber Supply Areas that overlap Tahltan territory: the Cassiar TSA, Nass TSA, Prince George TSA, Mackenzie TSA and Fort Nelson TSA. However, the accessible forestry opportunities within Tahltan territory are located in the Cassiar and Nass TSAs.

NorthPac Forestry Group Ltd. works directly with Tahltan members, the Tahltan Central Government and the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation (TNDC) on various resource development projects on their traditional territory.

The Tahltan have developed very well-respected business relationships with the companies they choose to operate with on their lands. They have various departments within their government that work very hard to ensure those working on their territory understand and follow their land use guidelines. Their business acumen, inherent knowledge of their land and their strong organizational structure makes working with the Tahltan very rewarding. The strong leadership exhibited by both the Tahltan Central Government and their business development arm make it a privilege to be one of the companies they have chosen to do business with.
