Gitksan-Wet'suwet'en

There is no such thing as the Gitksan-Wet'suwet'en language. Gitksan and Witsuwit'en are two unrelated languages spoken by neighbouring First Nations. The false belief that there is a Gitksan-Wet'suwet'en language arises from the fact that the two allied nations formed an Office of the Gitksan Wet'suet'en Hereditary Chiefs.
