Waykt! The Little Shuswap Lake Band Chief and Council welcome you to our home . We hope this site keeps our community members and visitors well-informed. LSLB offers a wide range of services that benefit everyone throughout life including our administrative programs, economic developments, territorial stewardship, and job opportunities.
To the people of the Little Shuswap, this land is known as Skwlax. The settlers could not say the Shuswap name so it is known today as Squilax. Skwlax in the Shuswap language means black bear.
Whether you are travelling through on vacation or planning to stay with us awhile, we know you will agree that truly we have the “Land of the Great Spirit.” From the snow-capped mountains to the panoramic view of the Shuswap Lake, these natural scenic wonders will leave you breathless and yearning to return once more.
A limited amount of hunting on the reservation has preserved the abundance of wildlife in their pristine environment. Campgrounds amid the pines are easily reached, minutes from the main highways. Most of the recreational areas are especially scenic with excellent fishing close at hand. The flora and fauna of the Little Shuswap are a photographers dream.
With all that we have to offer, we ask that you come… come visit us… come stay with us… all that we ask is that you treat the land and the people with respect.
This is our home for the short time that we are here on Mother Earth, but it is the home of the great spirit for eternity.
