Nee-Tahi-Buhn First Nation

"Nee-Tahi-Buhn" is the name of an Athabaskan First Nations community of British Columbia, Canada. The Nee-Tahi-Buhn Band is primarily made up of Wet'suwet'en people. Nee Tahi Buhn is the Wet'suwet'en name of a lake in their tribal territory, meaning "it fills at one end and empties at the other." The Nee-Tahi-Buhn people are English speakers today, but some people, especially elders, also speak their native Wet'suwet'en language.
