Te’mexw Treaty Association is a non-profit society formed of five Coast Salish Nations – Beecher Bay (SC’IA⁄NEW), Malahat, Snaw-Naw-As, Songhees and T’Sou-ke. The Te’mexw five member Nations joined to support one another and to work together under one organization to negotiate five Nation-specific modern treaties with the federal and provincial governments in the British Columbia treaty process.
We are proud of the many people that work at the Te’mexw Treaty Association. Our staff represent each of the five member Nations and their communities.
Our treaty process officially began in 1994. However, preceding that is a long timeline of fighting for land rights and self-governance for Indigenous Nations both on Vancouver Island and across Canada.
