The Splatsin (pronounced spla-jeen) people reside on Indian reserve lands adjacent to the City of Enderby to the south and across the Shuswap River to the east. The Splatsin are the southernmost tribe of the Shuswap Nation, the largest Interior Salish speaking First Nation in Canada.
Our aboriginal territory stretches from the B.C./Alberta border near the Yellowhead Pass to the plateau west of the Fraser River, southeast to the Arrow Lakes and to the upper reaches of the Columbia River.
The 16 Eagle feathers in our logo represent the other Secwépemc communities, Splatsin being the 17th.
Five arrows depict Council which are bound together by the three Eagle feathers which mark Splatsin’s three reserves.
The five Secwepemctsin place names are physical parts of the territory near or within the reserve boundaries.
