Nisga'a: People of the Nass River
"I guess the white man calls it 'land claims' - such and such a tribe's land claim. But the term really describes how they came and took our land without consulting us, doing away with aboriginal people in the millions. But we survived. And today, we are still in our land - Ts'eets'ikwshl Nisga'a. It belongs to our grandfathers and grandmothers. We never signed anything away."
