Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs


Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs

The Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) is a First Nations political organization founded in 1969 in response to Jean Chrétien's White Paper proposal to assimilate Status Indians and disband the Department of Indian Affairs.

Since the disbanding of the Allied Tribes of British Columbia in 1927, there had been many attempts to create a unified provincial organization, but conflict between the primarily coastal/Protestant Native Brotherhood of British Columbia and the primarily interior/Catholic National American Indian Brotherhood had been too great.

At a three-day meeting in October 1969 in Kamloops, 175 provincial chiefs unanimously voted to create the UBCIC. The first three-person executive consited of Victor Adoph, Herbert Maitland, and Phillip Paul.
