Investing with Penelakut Tribe

 Print

Overview

Region:  Vancouver Island and Coast

Nation:  Coast Salish

The Penelakut Tribe accounts for about 13 percent of the Hul’qumi’num population. Historically, Penelakut villages were found on Penelakut Island, Galiano Island, and on Vancouver Island near the mouth of the Chemainus River.

Today, the Penelakut have reserves on Penelakut Island, Tent Island, Galiano Island, and one small reserve on the lower reaches of the Chemainus River.

The term ‘Penelakut’ is used to refer to all the Hul’qumi’num people who, at one time or another, have lived on Penelakut Island. Historically, there were three permanent winter villages on Penelakut Island: at Penelakut Spit, Telegraph Harbour, and Lamalchi Bay. There were also villages at Chemainus Harbour and on Galiano Island. Penelakut Spit extends off the northeast end of Kuper (Penelakut) Island, and was the site of the largest Hul’qumi’num village on the Gulf Islands.
