Investing with Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation



Region:  Vancouver Island and Coast

Nation:  Kwakwaka'wakw

We would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all guests visiting our Nation.

Here you will find information about the Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation and the opportunities that we are creating and pursuing as we exercise sovereignty over our traditional territory, as we have always done. In valuing our connections, we continue to respect and work with our traditional tribal group of the Musggamagw-Dzawadaenuxw, including our close neighbours the Dzawadaenuxw First Nation and the Gwawaenuk Tribe.

Our people have occupied our traditional territory on British Columbia’s central coast since time immemorial. This beautiful place that we call home spans from Wakeman Sound to the pristine waters between Gilford Island and Village Island where the territory of the Mamalilikala begins. Within our ancestral territory we enjoy an abundance of natural resources and spectacular scenery. Our connection to our lands and resources defines who we are as people. As stewards of our territory and its resources, we embrace growth and development, but diligently work to move forward on the basis of sustainability. For us, this means that activities involving our lands and resources must be carried out in a manner consistent with our traditional teachings, principles and practices.
