Allied Tribes of Lax Kw'alaams

The Lax Kw’alaams table is exploring a tripartite reconciliation agreement.

Lax Kw’alaams traditional lands and waters are located on the northwest coast of BC around Port Simpson, Prince Rupert and the Skeena River. The Lax Kw'alaams Band was formerly part of the Tsimshian Nation, and separated in the spring of 2004. There are approximately 4,050 Lax Kw’alaams members. 

Lax Kw’alaams has overlapping and/or shared territory with its First Nation neighbours: Gitxaala, Kitselas, Kitsumkalum, Metlakatla and Nisga’a.
