Skin Tyee First Nation
"Skin Tyee" is the name of an Athabaskan First Nations community of British Columbia, Canada.
The Skin Tyee Band is primarily made up of Wet'suwet'en people.
The band is named in honor of a former Wet'suwet'en chief known as Skin Tyee.
The people of the Skin Tyee band are English speakers today, but some people, especially
elders, also speak their native Wet'suwet'en language.
