The Tsleil-Waututh Nation (Halkomelem: səl̓ilwətaɁɬ IPA: [səl’ilwətaɁɬ]), formerly known as the Burrard Indian Band or Burrard Band, is a First Nations band government in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The Tsleil-Waututh are Coast Salish peoples who speak the Downriver dialect[1] of the Halkomelem language, and are closely related to but politically and culturally separate from the nearby nations of the Squamish and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), with whose traditional territories some claims overlap.

The Tsleil-waututh Nation is a member government of the Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council, which includes other governments on the upper Sunshine Coast, southeastern Vancouver Island and the Tsawwassen band on the other side of the Vancouver metropolis from the Tsleil-waututh. There are almost 600 members with 287 living on the reserve as of January 2018.[2]

According to the 2011 national Community Well Being Index, Burrard Inlet 3 is considered the most prosperous First Nation community in Canada. [3]

Notable members

The most famous member of the Tsleil-Waututh was Chief Dan George, an actor and native rights advocate best known for his role as Old Lodge Skins in Little Big Man , The Outlaw Josey Wales and for another role as Old Antoine in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series Cariboo Cowboy (based on books by Paul St. Pierre). His descendants still figure prominently in band government and culture. The band is also known for its war canoe racing team, Takaya (wolves). The band operates a war-canoe tour/experience known as Takaya Tours.


In 2006, a documentary followed and was filmed by four Tsleil-Waututh youth to highlight their struggles with the education system. The documentary — titled as Reds, Whites & the Blues and/or, Reading, Writing & the Rez — is a CBC Newsworld in-house production co-produced with CBUT.
