Although the Nc’icn gray wolves were confirmed as a pack in 2012, wolves had been documented on the Colville Indian Reservation in NE Washington since 2008. The Colville Tribe named the group of wolves in the Sanpoil River region of the reservation the Nc’icn Pack, which means “grey mist as far as you can see” in the Okanogan language.
Tribal biologists collared a female wolf in July 2016.
At the end of 2018, biologists confirmed at least 4 pack members and confirmed the family had breeding pair status.
Current numbers: 4
Pack status: Designated in 2012.
