Seabird Island Chief & Council hold their hands up to all the volunteers, Band Members, students and Seabird Island Band staff for making the 50th Seabird Island Festival successful and memorable.

A special thank you to the high school students and Seabird Island recovery clients who came out to assist to make the Pow wow a huge success.

It is very inspiring to see the hard work of the community pulling together to clean yards and grounds.

Your involvement, continued support is truly appreciated and recognized.

Who we are

The Seabird Island Band exists to promote a healthier, self-sufficient, self-governing, unified and educated community. We believe that a healthy community is one that has achieved physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and cultural balance.

We work towards building a community where communal pride and respect are based on family values and respect for other people’s values, views and ideas. We want to co-exist with other communities and governments while exerting our right to be a self-governing nation.

We promote full employment, the development of our local economy, and improved housing conditions. We want our community to be a safe and prosperous place for our people. We aim at achieving a good standard of living for all our Band Members.
