Programs and Services

Guided by Nisga'a culture, and best practices from around the world, Nisga'a Lisims Government works to improve the lives of Nisga'a people. In partnership with the four Nisga'a village governments, NLG delivers a wide range of culturally-appropriate programs and services in the areas of health, education, social development, local services, and access to justice.

Sayt-K'il'im-Goot> One Heart
At the centre of Nisga'a culture is the concept of Sayt-K'il'im-Goot, or One Heart, which stipulates that everything in Nisga'a society-from resources to responsibility-is owned collectively by the Nisga'a people. It is a way of thinking that ensures everyone has a chance to share in the wealth of the nation while contributing to the care of the community. Nisga'a Lisims Government is dedicated to honouring this concept by delivering programs and services that reflect and respect Nisga'a culture and tradition.
