Chad Stump, Band Manager
"?Esdilagh is the 'sleeping giant' of the Tsilhqot'in. We are one of the smallest nations but the location and vicinity are perfect for our culture to raise our children and be at the forefront of our leaderships visions. I am happy to work for our community and will continue to give 110 percent for our nation. Thank you very much for the opportunity to be part of ?Esdilagh and to make a difference for our future generations."
My name is Chad Stump I've been an ?Esdilagh First Nation member for better part of 20 years. I transferred into the First Nation from another neighbouring Tsilhqot'in Community since then I've lived in ?Esdilagh all of my life while raising three young strong boys in this community. My passion is to see this community flourish and prosper from many projects that are in the works and planned for our people while acknowledging the Elders and Youth that are a very big part of the heritage and growth of our community.
