Wet'suwet'en

Located in the Central Interior of British Columbia, the Wet'suwet'en peoples are a First Nation who are a division of the Dakelh (Carrier) people.

There are five clans attributed to the Wet'suwet'en people: Gil_seyhu (Big Frog), Laksilyu (Small Frog), Gitdumden (Wolf, Bear), Laksamshu (Fireweed) and Tsayu (Beaver). 1

Witsuwit'en is the language of the Wet'suuwet'en people and is a member of the Athabaskan language family. It is closely related to Dakelh. 2

There are a few artists from the Wet'suwet'en community in the collections at the University of Victoria. This includes a large number of prints by Robert E. Sebastian. There also prints in the collection by artists Walter Joseph Jr. and Lawrence J. Rosso 'sisakolas'.
