Community Description

The Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nations are a First Nations government on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The Nation's centre is known as Yuquot, which means "Friendly Cove," historically allowed multiple tribes to gather during the summer harvest season as one large confederacy of strength, commerce and hospitality. This rich culture continues today with the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nations opening up the Yuquot Historic Village site for the entire world to come and experience their history and culture. Yuquot village has been designated as a National Historic Site.
