The Nation of Tsilhqot'in (sometimes Latinized as Chilcotin) is a small Northwestern Borealian state. Based out of the village of Tsi Del Del, the Tsilhqot'in (which can be used both as the name of the main ethnic group of the nation or the nation itself) are currently led by Yakez.
The Nation of Tsilhqot'in...
The recently formed, and quite shaky, nation of Tsilhqot'in, under the leadership of Yakez, who is the de facto leader of the Athabaskan people, continues to stabilize from the death of their elderly in the past year. The power void that has been left allows Yakez to consolidate control into one person. He plays off of the failure of the elders to read the omens from the Great Sky Spirits in order to gain even greater power. In the late winter, Napay-shni Mato returns, with a contingent of 300 other young braves from the Titunwan Lakota people. Mato and Yakez, who can communicate in the native Chilcotin tongue, discuss many things. The Sioux tribesmen educate the Tsilhqot'in, and gift hundreds of thunder-bisons to the native peoples. The legends of the great mound cities of great wealth are proven to be true by the Titunwan - stories of the great nation of Mississippia are heard. Suddenly, the lamentations seems to stop throughout the coast and valleys. The pale-face threat, while still present, seems much smaller with the aid of 300 crack Sioux troops. The Titunwan Lakota, who hate the French pale-faces, deem the Bavarians to be equally evil. Yakez is convinced by the impassioned speeches of Napay-shni Mato, and decides to test the military might of his new nation. Calling upon other tribal nations in the area, Napay-shni Mato begins to organize resistance against the evil "pale-faces." The call is taken up by the Nuxalk and Heiltsuk who send men to be trained by the Sioux warriors. Before the year is out, the military is entirely ready to handle the Neu Bayern threat. On the night of a blood-red harvest moon (the Xàn Dís), a powerful omen of war and ruin, Yakez addresses his braves, calling upon the Great Sky Spirits. "Today, brethren, we mobilize to retake our land from the pale-faces and their evil hatred. We shall destroy their houses, raze their fields, and murder every last one of them." The mobilized army then marches into Neu Bayern from Tsi Del Del, destroying the crops along the way. They arrive, via the thunder-bison, to the hamlet of Katharinas-Hafen, which they attack throughout the winter. Back in Tsi Del Del, Yakez orders the exploration of the coast of the Tléix'Ísh (Pacific Ocean). Meanwhile, people of the Kwakiutl are integrated along the coast, adding expansion to the north. The Kenpesq’t people (a Sepwepemc tribe) are organized by some expansion-minded young followers of Yakez.
