Tribal Boundaries in the Nass Watershed

By Neil J. Sterritt; Susan Marsden et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

A work of this nature is not an individual affair, and it cannot be completed without the active support of a great number of people. In the first place, this work would not have been possible without the unceasing efforts of generations of Gitanyow, Kispiox, Kuldo, and Kisgaga'as persons who presented their truths in various forums without once having the satisfaction of knowing that they were heard. They number in the hundreds. The English names of many appear in the pages of this book. Many never had English names, but held the names of their ancestors, names that their descendants hold today.

Others who must be thanked include the Tahltan Nation, in particular the elders in the village of Iskut who explained their genealogies and histories in the upper Nass, Skeena, Klappan, and Stikine watersheds. Many of the Iskut people have a Gitksan origin. Their contribution has been significant.

We would like to thank the Gitanyow and Gitksan Treaty Offices, and Glen Williams and Don Ryan in particular, for supporting the need for an in-depth approach to the issue of competing claims. Thanks go also to Dr. Peter Williams ( 1900-95), Gugwihl Gyoo, president of the Kitwan- cool for more than half a century, who practised and taught that reason would prevail in the pursuit of justice for Aboriginal people.

Those persons who assisted in the early stages of the report include Joanne McDonald, Georgiana Ball, and Theresa Crosgrey. Gordon Wilson and Russell Collier were of immense assistance throughout the various stages of this project, and their help is appreciated. Our appreciation also goes to Kathy Holland, archivist at the Gitksan Treaty Office library, whose efficiency in providing materials on request was invaluable, as was that of the British Columbia Archives and the National Archives of Canada. Eric Leinberger must be recognized and thanked for his work on the maps in this book. Our appreciation is also extended to Cole Harris and the
