Native Brotherhood of British Columbia
The Native Brotherhood of British Columbia is a province-wide First Nations rights organization founded in the Tsimshian community of Port Simpson (a.k.a. Lax Kw'alaams), British Columbia, in 1931. The Tsimshian ethnologist and chief William Beynon and Chief William Jeffrey were among its four founding members. It was modeled in spirit and structure on the Alaska Native Brotherhood.
