FINAL_XG Watershed Plan 2021_web-01.jpg

“Water is the Basis for Everything”

The Xeni Gwet’in 2021 Watershed Plan contains principles, a purpose, goals, objectives, and a watershed action plan, all of which come directly from a review of XGFNG’s existing reports, work, and accumulated expertise in this area. The report centres around the six identified goals:

  1. To centre Tŝilhqot’in culture and healing in all of our watershed decision making.

  2. To maintain, and where necessary restore, a clean, intact watershed.

  3. To take care of the habitat of all of our relations on the landscape as we always have.

  4. To build capacity on water governance within the XGFNG and our Xeni Gwet’in community, while centring Tŝilhqot’in knowledge in our watershed decision making.

  5. To coordinate, integrate, and communicate our watershed decision making with Xeni Gwet’in work and Tŝilhqot’in nation government work.

  6. To communicate, and where necessarily write down, our Tŝilhqot’in laws and laws of this land in the form of policies, protocols, regulations, strategies, and/or laws.
