We are the Nuchatlaht people. Our territory are the lands and waters around the northern portion of Nootka Island and the adjacent inlets on the west coast of Vancouver Island. We have been here since time immemorial.
We speak Nuu-chah-nulth, our language we share with 14 other Nuuchah-nulth First Nations on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

YOUTH DINER FOR GRAMA ROSE
The youth group invited community members to a supper in honor of "Grama Rose". Youth and community members brought potluck offerings. An excellent meal.
ELDERS COMMUNITY/YOUTH KITCHEN
We are please to have a have received funding from the "New Relationship Trust" program that has allowed us to have an Elder's kitchen. This program will allow the elders to pass down traditional food preparation and storage knowledge to the next generation. Audrey Smith one of our elders (Ms. Fish) spent the day with our youth from the Day Camp program and prepared smoked fish for a ceremonial gathering. Fun was had by all, some kids having never cleaned fish (although they all know how to enjoy eating fish).
YOUTH DAY CAMP
We received grant funding from Nuu-cha-nulth Trible Council's NETP program for our "Youth Day Camp" . This has provided employment for two youth workers, and has provided supervised activities for the kids in our community. Trips to the docks fishing is a regular and popular activity, along with board games, trampoline jumping, swimming, and any other "fun" that can be found.
