Biographie / Histoire administrative

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.

Information additionnelle

Historique de la conservation
The records of the Skeena River Agency and those of the Nass Agency are inextricably linked because of the history of the administrative relationship between the two agencies. The same agent who had headed the Nass Agency was appointed for the Skeena River Agency in 1922. The office of the former Nass Agency in Prince Rupert was taken over and served as the office of the Skeena River Agency after 1922. Given this physical continuity it is not surprising that individual files sometimes contain correspondence from both the Nass Agency and the Skeena River Agency periods of administration.

Note sur le classement
The records in this series came into National Archives custody from either the Skeena River Agency or its successors. An attempt has been made to assign to the Nass Agency series those records that date from the period in which that administrative unit was in operation (i.e., only up to 1922). However, some records which date from the Nass Agency period, inevitably, have been found mixed with the Skeena River Agency material.
