Treaty Process[edit]

Yale has reached Stage 6 in the BC Treaty Process,[19] but the current Chief and Council recently announced that they have halted implementation of their final agreement that was negotiated by former leadership, and do not intend to bring the agreement into full force and effect. Compared to other modern treaty agreements, the land offer was 1.92% of their traditional land base by area, much lower than the 5% benchmark set by other agreements. In addition to the land concerns, there were many other factors that have stirred much controversy over the ability of the final agreement to achieve the desired objectives. For example, the agreement references the Puchil dialect of the Nlaka'pamux Nation, but many members of the community speak Halq'emeylem which is a Coast Salish language.

Demographics[edit]

Number of Band Members: 150.[1]
