Band Organization

Xwísten  Administration is responsible for numerous services for its members: health, education, social development, housing, community development, economic development, land and resources, and other administrative services.

The band is made up of two parts: leadership and administration. The authority of our leadership to make decisions comes directly from Xwísten members through elections. Chief and Council decisions are implemented by staff under the management of the Band Administrator. The chart below illustrates this organization.
