Nak’azdli First Nation, British Columbia
Our 4th Taking Action! workshop was held in Nak’azdli First Nation in October 2009.
Nak’azdli is located in Fort St. James, 153 km from Prince George which is the closest city. Nak’azdli First Nation services 16 reserves totaling 1,458 hectares. Much of their activity revolves around forestry, some trapping, hunting, fishing and year-round youth activities. Nak’azdli has its own Elementary School (known as Nak’albun Elementary), Youth Center, Church, Gas Station, Gymnasium, Band office, Sawmill and are one of three partners in Sustat Holdings Ltd. Nak’azdli is a member of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) along with six other First Nation Bands; Burns Lake, Nad’leh Whuten, Saik’uz First Nation, Takla Lake First Nation, Tl’azt’en Nation and Wet’suwet’en First Nation. Nak’azdli First Nation is made up of approximately 1700 on and off reserve members.
Our Nak’azdli Youth Coordinators, Jocelyn Joseph and Kerry Buck, did an amazing job organizing the event! Nak’azdli youth decided to create a video about HIV prevention. Check out their photos of the process below!
