The original inhabitants of Vancouver Island chose this region because of the abundance of life, natural resources, and the temperate climate. Learn about local culture and traditions of the Kwakwaka‘wakw, Coast Salish, and Nuu-chah-nulth communities while elders practice the old ways, sharing their knowledge and skills with the next generation and helping to create a respectful relationship with the world around us.
Vancouver Island and the abundant life-giving waters of the surrounding Pacific Ocean are the Traditional Territory of the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwakaw’akw People.
Embark on a transformative trip and seek Indigenous experiences from urban Victoria to the wilderness of the Pacific Rim. Let Indigenous wildlife viewing and dining opportunities, accommodations and cultural experiences guide your Vancouver Island itinerary.
