Home / Your Government
We have been present in our territory since immemorial. We governed ourselves based on traditional customs and practices that were respectful, thoughtful and inclusive. In recent years, we have operated according to the framework defined by the Indian Act. It is no longer working for our community, as we need a more flexible governance system that we can adapt to our specific needs.
Splatsín is one of nine Secwepemc communities of the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council (SNTC). We are led by Kukpi7 (Chief) Wayne Christian who is also the Tribal Chief of the SNTC. Kukpi7 is supported by five Tkwamipla7 (Councillors) who are serving their four-year term (2018-2022). An election is held every four years to determine Splatsin’s leadership.
