The Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwakaw’akw people have long navigated the waters of the Pacific Ocean around Vancouver Island.

They share their deep, respectful relationship with the bountiful ocean and temperate rainforests. The abundance has sustained whale pods and allowed complex metal and wood art to flourish.
