Wuikinuxv people have lived on BC’s Central Coast since time immemorial. They have a rich cultural history and special connection to land and sea. Ceremonies were central to Wuikinuxv spirituality, usually surrounding seasonal harvesting of land and sea resources. Wuikinuxv Territory covers almost 7,000 square kilometers of land and more than 200 square kilometers of sea. The Territory is home to deep temperate forested valleys, glacial peaks of the Pacific Coast Range Mountains, and a large network of lakes.
