  • • I have a BCR signed by Xeni Gwet’in so I can hunt, trap, fish ,and use the land. Tom and I are definitely going to settle at NabiS, and we will be harvesting hay from the meadows. The proper procedure for me would be to get an Intensive- Agriculture Land Use Operational Policy - permit. That will not be possible because Taseko Mines Ltd. already has the environmental assessment permit. I was going to apply for the permit in the past, and I was told it wouldn’t be granted in light of the fact that Taseko Mines had an interest and the Ministry wouldn’t grant me one. Taseko Lake Lodge tried and was turned down.

  • • My husband Tom, Wade, and I stayed up at Yanah Biny,(Little Fish Lake) last fall to refurbish Jimmy’s cabin, and we put the roof on. We will be going back up in the Spring to install the windows, the floor, chimney, the door, sand the logs, and put preservative on the logs. We plan on harvesting logs for building the main house behind Little Fish Lake at the natural spring. it is at J9 on Taseko Mine's Archaeological Site map, Willows are invading the hay-fields, so we will be cultivating the hay- fields. We need to upgrade the ditches so the fields will not flood.

  • • Taseko Archaeological site map area J9, is an old building and corral site build by Seymour in the 1800s. The hay meadow is situated on the map at I9, right behind Yanah Biny, (Little Fish Lake.). All these areas that were used by Jimmy Bulyan are situated in I8, I9, J9, I10, J10, J11, K11, J12, K12. These areas I will be using as homestead and hayfields. These areas, and all the old cabins at Little Fish Lake will also be under water as Prosperity Lake if the mine is allowed to grab hold.

  • • Jimmy and Amelia Bulyan practically shed blood, sweat, and tears to establish their home on this land. They loved it despite the hardships. Because of this, and my love for this land, I will not give it up for the mine to obliterate. The history of the Tsilhqot’in who lived here will be like dust in the wind. The land has it’s own language, it speaks, it sighs, and it shows its anger, and it shows you its beauty when it’s happy. Only people who have an appreciation for the land will understand.

  • • A photo of happy times at the winter homestead at Yanah Biny with Jimmy.

    • A photo of some of Jimmy’s extended family now.

    • Theresa Stump, my sister and her husband Roy will also be building a house within the vicinity of JidiZay,(Onion Lake.)

    • My older brothers Marvin and his wife; Joseph and Delia, will be building cabins in and around NabiS too. Sonny Lulua and his wife want to settle up there as well. Sonny’s son Jimmy will be building a youth camp at TeZtan.

  • • I have registered an eco-tourism business name.

    • Spirit Horse Trails will be a low environmental impact business, which will specialize in Tsilhqot’in traditions, culture,horse back rides, hiking, X-country skiing, botany, bird watching…etc. We also have plans to have a few organic beef cattle.

    • Tom & I will be working hard to reach our goal.

  • BCR signed by Chief Marilyn And councilors.

  • Letters of references from two big game and tourism outfitters

  • Tom and I posted no trespassing signs up at the entrance to the meadows, and entrance to Yanah Biny. We need to post up signs for quad use on roads and trails only, and for people to haul their garbage out when they visit the land.

  • • Tom and I will be using most of this mapped area for agriculture, and for building our home. We will be building fences and gates all around the meadows so horses and cows don’t eat all the grass.
