Saik'uz First Nation is a community of approximately 400 with an additional 600 members living throughout British Columbia and Canada. Its traditional territory is located near the geographical centre of BC, with the leading community situated on the east end of Nulki Lake, 14 kilometres south of the town of Vanderhoof. A member of the greater Dakelh (Carrier) Nation, Saik'uz derives its name from the Dakelh word meaning "on the sand", which refers to the sandy soil on which the main community is settled. Saik'uz has a rich tradition of trapping, hunting, fishing, and medicine, and is currently working to revitalize its language in-community and to develop sustainable economic and cultural growth.
Due to maintenance on the boiler system, the Saik'uz Band Office will be closed until October 19, 2021. Staff are working from home and available to assist.
The Saik'uz Daycare and Health Centre remain open with staff in the office. Visitors to these offices must wear a mask when inside the buildings or they will be asked to leave.
We understand this is a stressful time. Care for yourself and others by staying home if you are sick, wearing a mask when in public, limiting how much you visit with people who don't live with you, and getting plenty of rest and water. Together, we will get through this pandemic.
