GIS Technician

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 A.E.W. 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 promote Nlaka’pamux title and rights:

  • Our archaeological services include: Heritage Reconnaissance, Archaeological Assessments and Monitoring, Heritage Site Evaluation and Mitigation, Artifact and Faunal Analysis, and GIS Mapping.
  • Our environmental services include: Environmental Impact Assessments, Environmental Surveying and Management Plans, Implementation of Mitigation and Reclamation Measures and Environmental Auditing and Monitoring Services.
