#IndigenousCoastBC

Here is your potential to connect to the earth in some new ways that will leave you transformed.

Here is your invitation; welcome to #IndigenousCoastBC

The Pacific Northwest is home to an array of thriving First Nations communities. Tla’amin, Toquaht, Huu-ay-aht and Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations have partnered with ZenSeekers bringing you stories around Indigenous owned and operated tourism experiences.  

By supporting indigenous business in some of the world’s top destinations, means you are supporting the rise of language and a culture that is rooted in the land.

Please enjoy and share this content, joining the thousands of others who want to see a unified Canada.  Be a traveller who supports the rise of an indigenous creative class who are working, and succeeding at, preserving their language, their culture and their lands for thousands of additional years to come.

Welcome to #IndigenousCoastBC, please use this tag to share your story and for additional inspiration and education please search #IndigenousCoastBC on your favourite social media channel.

Please note: Toquaht Nation (Secret Beach Campground) and Tla'amin's Lund Resort are closed to travellers at this time but look forward to welcoming you in 2021. Huu-ay-aht will be offering virtual tours of Kiixin through summer 2020, while their Bamfield business operations are open and welcoming respectful travellers into the community.  Tla-o-qui-aht has a similar approach in welcoming respectful travellers which allows you to check into the Tin Wis Resort and/or book an Allies tour of the Big Tree Trail on Meares Island. Please be mindful while travelling and adhere to the latest BC Health Authority guidelines.

Stories

There’s nothing quite like the moment – driving between Ucluelet and Tofino – when you first turn that corner and are met with a glimpse of the ocean, bathed in the shimmering golden light of a coastal sunset.

Situated on the southwestern coast of Vancouver Island is the tight-knit community of Bamfield, home to the Huu-ay-aht First Nations, and access point to the ancient Kiixin Village – the only known traditional village site on the coast of southern B.C. to still contain standing structures.
