10th Anniversary Of TNG’s Indigenous Land Rights Victory in Canada

The Tsilqot’in National Government is marking the tenth year since their historic Aboriginal Title victory.

For 25 years the TNG said the Nation fought in Canadian courts to have Tsilhqot’in lands, culture, and way of life recognized and respected by Canada.

It resulted in the first declaration of Aboriginal title in Canadian history affirming Tsilhqot’in ownership and control of 1900 kilometres of their ancestral lands that stands as a landmark around the world.

This land rights victory in Canada, known as the Tsilqot’in Decision, was highlighted today (April 18) while the Tsilhqot’in National Government and their Youth Ambassadors were attending the United Nations Permanent Forum of Indigenous Issues in New York City.
