Our Past

In the time of our Ancestors, residents of Tŝideldel spoke the Tsilhqot'in Lanuage, were nomadic and had seasonal camps wherever food was in abundance. The Tsilhqot'in had laws, stucture and stability in their own way utilizing the power of working together. This contributed to their legacy existing. Desite all trials and tibulations, the Tsilhqot'in of Tŝideldel are determined to carry on their culture today.

Our Present and Future

Today, many the People of Tŝideldel have families, work, attend school, play sports and work to pass over Tsilhqot'in culture and knowlege to the youth. Elders hope that this will be accomplished through more language and culture in schools, spending more time and getting lessons out on the land and attending Cultural Camps.

Many still love to go out and hunt, fish, outdoor activity, craft making, Drumming, singing and playing Lehal. The Redstone Rodeo is also a favorite pass time in August of every year.
