The Wet’suwet’en First Nation (No. 725), is located west of Burns Lake in the central interior of British Columbia.  It was formerly known as the Broman Lake Indian Band and is still usually referred to as Broman Lake, although this is no longer its official name.  Members speak the Witsuwit’en dialect of Babine-Witsuwit’en, a Northern Athabaskan language.  The main community is Palling Indian Reserve No. 1.

Approximately 150 members live on and off Reserve lands.  The Wet’suwet’en First Nation was formerly part of the Omineca Band.  In 1984 the Omineca Band split into the Broman Lake and Nee-Tahi-Buhn bands.  The Skin Tayi band later split off from Nee-Tahi-Buhn.

The current Council is:

    * Chief Vivian Tom
