We are honoured to Live, Work and Play on the Traditional Territory of the Hupacasath and Tseshaht First Nations Peoples.

About the Hupacasath People

  • For thousands of years the Hupacasath people have owned, used, and occupied their traditional territory on Central Vancouver Island (See Hupacasath Traditional Territory Map 1). The Hupacasath are comprised of three distinct tribes, the Muh-uulth-aht, Kleh-koot-aht and Cuu-ma-as-aht (Ahahswinis).
