A.E.W. Limited Partnership



About Us

The Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council (NNTC) is dedicated to the protection, advancement, and exercise of Nlaka’pamux title and rights. To carry out this mandate, part of our strategy has been to create legal entities including AEW Limited Partnership (AEW LP).

AEW LP was formed in 2017 by NNTC member communities to carry out “on the ground” work related to archaeology, the environment and wildlife protection. This work has been made necessary by activities of others within the Nlaka’pamux homeland including transportation, mining, forestry, oil and gas, and utilities projects. The NNTC is not opposed to development within our homeland but developments and activities must be consistent with Nlaka’pamux title and rights. AEW LP is guided by the fundamental Nlaka’pamux law: Take care of the land and the land will take care of you.

AEW LP is a vehicle created to ensure work of the highest standard, controlled by the Nlaka’pamux, is done to protect and advance Nlaka’pamux title and rights.

As Nlaka’pamux jurisdiction is re-asserted and our laws and policy govern work within our homeland, AEW LP is there to implement the change. AEW LP is staffed by both Nlaka’pamux and non-Nlaka’pamux.
