Biography / Administrative history
The Nass Agency was divided into the Nass and Skeena River agencies in 1920. The two agencies were re-united in 1922 under the name Skeena River Agency. The Skeena River Agency headquarters remained at Prince Rupert, site of the office of the former Nass Agency, and Agent Collinson, formerly the agent for the Nass Agency, became the agent for the new Skeena River Agency. It has not been possible to determine which bands were transferred to the Skeena River Agency in 1919, and which bands were moved in 1922. In 1959, some bands from the Agency were moved to the newly-created Terrace Agency and in 1967 the Skeena River Agency became the North Coast District.
