Our holistic vision seeks to balance ethical growth with Tsleil-Waututh values.

The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is one of many groups of Coast Salish peoples living in the Pacific Northwest, throughout British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. Our knowledge of the lands and waters of our territory has shaped our people.

Community News & Updates

The latest news from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation community
Public Safety Canada’s Building Safer Communities Fund (BSCF) offers four years of funding to support municipalities and Indigenous communities to develop and deliver community-based prevention and intervention initiatives that address risk and increase protective factors associated with youth gun and gang violence.
Tsleil-Waututh Nation is proud to stand alongside the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and the MST Development Corporation in being featured once again on the Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 List.
Rain nurtures us and our environment. But when rainwater travels through an urban and industrial area, it picks up poisons and carries them into our waterways, including səlilwət (Burrard Inlet). This toxic urban runoff affects wildlife, our economic activities, our ability to swim, and to eat the seafood that has long nourished səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).
