The word Lheidli means "where the two rivers flow together" and T'enneh means "the People".
We are a proud group rich with culture that continues to thrive in north-central British Columbia, Canada.
Our elders, teachers, drummers, and other artists pass on our traditions and teachings to the next generations, keeping our culture strong.
Our connection with the land is maintained with our successful Fisheries and Forestry programs.
Our traditional territory stretches over 4.3 million hectares, from the impresssive Rocky Mountains to the beautiful interior plateau, including the City of Prince George.
The Fort George Indian Band Reserve was first established in 1892 where the Fraser and Nechako rivers meet. Downtown Prince George, neighbourhoods, and parks now reside on this site.
The history of our people is a big part of the history of the City of Prince George and the entire region.
To honor our traditional territory, we have been named the Official Host First Nation of the 2015 Canada Winter Games. Since the Canada Games inception in 1967, this is the first time in history that a First Nation has been acknowledged as a formal partner.
