Who We Support

The work of the South Island Indigenous Authority is understood using the language and teachings of the Longhouse*.

Within this approach, the territorial points within the eight nations we represent are like the Longhouse posts and outline the geographical area that will be covered under the new legislation. This reflects our understanding that “Everything that goes on in our longhouse is under our care”. 

The following map shows the territorial points (Longhouse posts) that define the areas that will be cared for under the new legislation: 

*When referring to the Longhouse, we are referring to general traditional teachings of the South Island Coast Salish Nations
