Community Description
We are the Tsilhqot'in-speaking people – the original inhabitants of a vast and beautiful territory that encompasses forests, grasslands, lakes and desert. For thousands of years, the Tsilhqot'in people were self-reliant and well provided for through their own ingenuity and use of the land and nature. Tl’etinqox (Anaham) is located 100 km west of Williams Lake along Highway 20.
