Sinixt Nation on Sentinel Mountain


Sinixt Nation on Sentinel Mountain

Re: Mt. Sentinel gate access and restrictions

The Sinixt Nation has been present at the Mt. Sentinel roadway all week with no communications from any contractors or Ministry representatives. We have placed a combo lock on the gate until further notice as a result of the lack of communications.

Any water-users, firewood gatherers, and other community members who maintain cultural relationships with the area who require access can contact Marilyn James or Taress Alexis at 250-226-6726 or Robert Watt or Dennis Zarelli Jr at the Sinixt Nation Bighouse at 250-226-6743 or email, and they will receive the combination.

Access to BCTS and its licensees is being restricted until further
communications and until the concerns of the Sinixt Nation are addressed. The Licensee can obtain the combination for the gate when they come to remove their equipment.

Dennis Zarelli Jr. Sinixt Nation Communications & Media Liaison for:

Marilyn James - Sinixt Nation Spokesperson

Robert Watt - Sinixt Nation Caretaker of Sacred Sites

Vance Robert Campbell - Sinixt Nation Headman
