Sample Description:  Sample from the Nadleh Whuten Band in the Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council from Central British Columbia, Stuart and Fraser Lake area. The source of this sample is Dr. M. V. Monslave. The Nadleh Whuten First Nation is a band under the Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council; they are ethnically Na-Dene. They speak the Carrier language, which is a major language in the Athabaskan branch of the Na-Dene linguistic family. The Carrier people are a traditionally sedentary group who occupy the upper Fraser River, Nazko River, Bulkley River, and the Nechako River in British Colombia. Their presence has become less noticeable throughout the years; however, the people still hold on to their unique identity. For example their traditional government, the Bahl'ats, in some respects still exists, however, it now exists alongside the band council governments. In this system everyone belongs to the particular clan which they were born.
