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.
