Kwadacha Nation

Shòwà’ nuk’ùnunusta

It is nice to see you again!

Kwadacha means “white water” in the Tsek’ene language.

The Kwadacha Nation (Tsek’ene) is commonly known as Fort Ware. Kwadacha is located 570 km North of Prince George BC at the confluence of the Fox, the Kwadacha, and Finlay rivers in the Rocky Mountain Trench. 

For many generations, our people traveled our land. The Finlay River basin is the heart of our Tsek’ene country, but we moved freely throughout.
