The Tsilhqot’in People of Xeni Gwet’in are one of six Tsilhqot’in communities – strongly independent and self-sufficient in their territory since time immemorial.
The People of Xeni (pronounced “honey”) take pride in their historic protection and preservation of the land, resources, and culture. Xeni is in the heart of British Columbia – the Nemiah Valley. The Nemiah Valley is one of the most beautiful areas within the Cariboo Chilcotin. The land is virtually “un-touched.”
This remote community is also the home of the legendary wild horses and Chilko sockeye. Situated at the head waters of the Chilko River, the Xeni Gwet’in Fishery is truly a sustainable river-of-origin fishery.
