Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band

Whispering Pines / Clinton Indian Band, is one of the smallest indian bands in the Shuswap nation. Documentation shows at one time the band population was approximately 10,000 members but was obliterated by small pox, currently the band’s population is 105 people both on and off the reserve, and are known as the Pellt’iq’t people which means “people of the white earth.”

Whispering Pines and members were originally located just outside of the village of Clinton on Highway 97 in the lower Cariboo region and were known as the Clinton Band.

The main reserve is accessible by road and air. It has a piped-in water supply from a reservoir, two community wells, and five private wells and utilizes septic tanks for sewage disposal.

Facilities available on the reserve include an administration building and a sports and recreation centre. Economic activities include cattle and hay ranching. The centre features world-class facilities, including: a 5/8 mile motocross track (In partnership with the Greater Kamloops Motor Cross Association); rodeo grounds; racetrack; baseball diamonds; concessions; a playground; and convention/camping/RV facilities including 60 camping units and washroom/shower facilities. We promote packages available to suit all needs of recreational activities and special events.
