The rich lands and waters of our Homelands have nourished our people since the beginning of time. We are descendants of the Tlatlasikwala, more about Nakumgilisala, salve and Yutlinuk peoples. Our Territory covers the lands and waters of northern

Vancouver Island in British Columbia, this site Canada, and our home village is at beautiful Bull Harbour on Hope Island. Once numbering 500, today 70 surviving members are working hard to rebuild our community.
