Report of the B.C. Claims Task Force recommends a new treaty process for B.C. By 1995 they develop the B.C. Treaty Commission Act. Subsequently, the Northern Secwépemc communities represented by the Northern Shuswap Tribal Council, as well as the Alkali Lake Band (Esk’etemc) join the B.C. Treaty process; the bands represented by SNTC do not join the B.C. Treaty process because some of those bands feel the process is fundamentally flawed.
