In-SHUCK-ch has developed several plans and policies which are governance tools to guide its progress towards Self-Government and Nationhood.


The Seven Generations Plan sets out the overarching vision for In-SHUCK-ch Nation. As per the 2005 Resolution, INIG was directed to develop, govern and implement the Nation in accordance with this plan.

The Seven Generations Plan was the catalyst for The Nation Building Plan, which is a detailed and strategic plan to implement the vision for self-government described in the Seven Generations Plan.

The Nation Building Plan sets out our own path to the Golden Apple- Nationhood. The Nation Building Plan breaks down the task of Nation Building into a series of manageable, community driven projects, implemented over the five years between ratification and the effective date of treaty. The end result of implementing the Nation Building Plan will be the creation of various additional institutions, organizations, plans and policies that, collectively, make up a self-governing Nation.

While In-SHUCK-ch is in transition towards self-government, In-SHUCK-ch already actively asserts its rights and title to its traditional territory and cultural heritage. It does so through plans, policies and permits that set out to protect, preserve, and manage our lands, natural resources, and heritage.

Third parties doing business in In-SHUCK-ch territory are requested to consult these plans and policies to ensure that activities are carried out in accordance with our stewardship values, and are compliant with our heritage policies.

The In-SHUCK-ch Land Stewardship Plan is a guide to the wise and respectful use of the land and resources of the In-SHUCK-ch traditional territory. It is both overarching and operational, and was prepared in tandem with, but without prejudice to, final agreement negotiations.
