Hereditary Governance Project

The Kitasoo/Xai’xais Stewardship Authority (KXSA) is undertaking a program to help re-invigorate the Hereditary Chieftainship governance system. KXSA, along with the input of any interested parties, intends to develop a process for reviewing information, gathering more information, and producing a set of documents that summarize the roles and responsibilities of Hereditary Chiefs including:

  • Statement of Kitasoo/Xai’xais Indigenous law
  • “Code of conduct” or “list of protocols” for Hereditary Chiefs
  • Summary of Hereditary Chief ownership privileges

KXSA will post a record of all the conversations that happen during this process to this website. This information is sensitive and should be kept within the community. Band members can contact the KXSA office to get the current password.
