Stkémlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation (SSN)

In 2007 the Stk’emlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation (SSN) Resource Sharing Protocol and Memorandum of Understanding was formed by Skeetchestn and T'Kemlups for the conservation, negotiations, and management of resources on the territory. These rights are balanced by responsibilities to pass a healthy Territory to future generations.


In the spirit of our people, we entered into a protocol to ensure the following:

  • The vision to protect Aboriginal TITLE AND RIGHTS of our territory
  • With a vision for greater PROSPERITY for our people and protection of our lands now and forever
  • Looking at JURISIDICTION, rights, obligations, responsibilities, mandates, trust, respect, benefits, and real partnership


  • UNITY is the ultimate goal in strengthening our relationship through our mutual interests
  • Framework, structure, and interaction on a daily basis guides our JOINT DECISION MAKING with a team focused approach
  • We coordinate both our political and technical teams toward IMPLEMENTATION of our agreements and relationships
  • Co-Decision making
  • Co-Management
  • Revenue Sharing
  • Partnership

Our Scope   

  • Work cooperatively to safeguard our interest and the protection of our land
  • Enrich the political, social, cultural, linguistic, and spiritual well-being of our people
  • To protect our people, land, and resources by working toward long-term sustainable development
