On November 16 & 17, our members will vote on the Sqwá (Skwah) First Nation Land Code.
The People of Skwah First Nation
Skwah First Nation has 687 band members. The main reservation is located in the Sto:lo Territory, near the historic Chilliwack Landing. Our original land in Chilliwack was the area where Five Corners now sits.
Skwah First Nation also encompasses other lands: Skwali just north of the Hope Slough, Skwahla at the base of Little Mountain, and Schelowat in Rosedale. Skwah FN also shares the administration of the Grass Indian Reserve #5, Pekw’Xe:yles, and Skumalasph IR#16. Chilliwack Landing Preschool has been teaching children from the community and surrounding areas for over 30 years, fostering the values of self-worth & self-preservation through the cultural connection within our children’s family traditions, elder teachings and community involvement. Our curriculum is all about ensuring our young children reach their full potential through the outstanding care and educational programming. We are an accredited school open to the community of Chilliwack and Sardis. A great source of pride for Skwah First Nation is the River Spirit Canoe Club. Started and run by the Williams family, members compete and win regularly throughout BC and the north western states. They also work closely with School District #33, where students are introduced to traditional First Nations cultural teaching and experiences.
The Housing Department is dedicated to providing safe, healthy and affordable housing for Skwah First Nation members. The Housing Committee meets monthly and is responsible for creating the Rental Housing Application list and hearing housing appeals.
