"The Neskonlith Indian Band belongs to the Secwepemc Nation, a nation whose traditional territory spans approximately 180,000 square kilometers in South-Central British Columbia. Occupying this territory, at one point, was 30 Bands. Today, however, only 17 of these bands remain. The Neskonlith Band is situated on 3 reserves centering around the area of Chase BC. The main administrative offices are on IR2 just south of Chase along the Thompson River and Trans-Canada highway."1
