Tsilhqot`in Stewardship Agreement

However, the agreement does not specify the extent to which supporters and other interested parties are consulted or how their interests are taken into account when implementing the agreement. The agreement does not prevent the Tsilhqot`in nation from concluding aid agreements or similar agreements with thought parties, but the parties involved in Tsilhqot`in territory are supposed to consult and be complacent in the spirit of the agreement. This agreement provides for resources and capabilities for the next three years to make resource decisions while protecting Tilhqot`s rights and title. It is a reference document for the nation.
