Who We Are

The Sq’éwqel (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.
