**The Kwikwasu’tinuxw Nation, the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Tribes and concerned members of the Mamalilikulla Nation staged a protest of the Mamalilikulla-Qwe’Qwa’Sot'Em referendum proposing to separate the Mamalilikulla and Qwe’Qwa’Sot’Em (Sewid Family) into two separate tribes.   We do not oppose that the Mamalilikulla are a distinct tribe with legitimate rights to a cultural history and lands, but refute that the people referring to themselves as Qwe’Qwa’Sot’Em have the legitimate right to the name, history and lands of the Kwikwasu’tinuxw Nation (composed of the Scows, Coons, Willies and inclusive of others).
