smelqmix Protected and Conserved Area (sPCA)

Means we, the smelqmix, have the primary role in protecting and conserving the ecosystems on our territory through smelqmix/ syilx laws, governance and knowledge systems. In addition to the n?aysnuls?x watershed, smelqmix elders have identified the cktpikn (Olalla Highlands), the ska?itk (Skagit), and the akttulmn (Tulameen) as priority areas that are needed to sustain the water and ecosystems of our homeland.
