Title: Nuu-chah-nulth Whaling and its Significance for Social and Economic Reproduction

Year: 1998

Author(s): Travis Reaveley

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Preface My inspiration for writing this essay came from the unwillingness on the part of many non-native people to acknowledge the rights of the Makah and other Nuu-chah-nulth groups to return to their whaling traditions. It is by no means meant to convey the feelings of Nuu-chah-nulth peoples, or characterize their own perspectives on this subject. It is rather an attempt to educate those unwilling to accept the rights of First Nation's people with respect to reclaiming the which has been taken from them. I write from a non-native perspective using anthropological references and determinations to support my conclusions. It is my hope that reading this essay will provide a forum for a re-evaluation on the part of those speaking from a perspective of ignorance, or simply from a lack of knowledge, about the issues.

Title: Ecologically Sustainable Economic Development in Alberni-Clayoquot

Year: 1992

Author(s): Clayoquot Biosphere Project; Ecotrust

Type: Proceedings

Description:
In order to stimulate creative thinking about sustainable development opportunities in the Alberni-Clayoquot region, the Clayoquot Biosphere Project and Ecotrust commissioned background research on secondary wood products manufacturing and the potential for community forests in the area. The first phase of this research culminated in a day-lnog workshop in Long Beach held on May 29, 1992. The workshop was attended by 35 invited participants including local entrepreneurs, successful wood products business owners from other parts of BC and the United States, construction and forestry workers, woodlot owners, native representatives, government officials, members of the local Chambers of Commerce, and a credit union official.

Title: The Question of Asiatic Objects on the North Pacific Coast of America: Historic or Prehistoric?

Year: 1990

Author(s): Grant Keddie

Type: Report (published)

Description:
Claims have been made that Native Indian cultures of the North Pacific coast of North America have been influenced by prehistoric contact with advanced cultures of China. Purported evidence has focused on the finding of ancient Chinese coins as well as literary references to early voyages and shipwrecks. These claims are dealt with in the context of examining the nature of the diffusion of Asiatic objects around the North Pacific Rim. Historic, protohistoric, and prehistoric events relevant to the interpretation of the evidence are discussed.

Title: News Around Clayoquot Sound

Year: 1990

Type: Book

Description:
Introduction: Local news, local heroes, local myths. In this quick age when so many newspapers melt suddenly into conrad blackness, an independent publication is a rarity. And a newspaper that is aided by a non-profit society, staffed by volunteers and concerns itself with local news, local heroes and local myths is so rare it could be considered experimental. Which is what The Sound curiously is, and has been. With grass-seed money ($4500), a few people started this brash publication as a bi-weekly early in 1990. It has, like a reluctant choo-choo, huffed and puffed, bellowed and farted, started and stopped, collapsed, re-energized, though it could. Now, still unravelling, it has started up yet again, in magazine form. Look out. During these seven years, Clayoquot Sound has become much more than the beautiful land-and-sea power spot of the Nuu-chah-nulth and much more than a tidal facility for corporate and multinational exploitation. It has become, among other things, a celebrated, fiercely sought-after destination. ("Where did those 850 people get arrested?" "Have you paddled The Clayoquot yet?") And it's become almost a spiritual magnet for neo-suburban pilgrims. It has changed, is changing, will change. But for many of us--for many of the 3000 people who choose to live year round in this sound -- there is still a fragile sense of place to be embraced, and a strong sense of community, of caring. A local publication - if it passes on accurate information and mirrors the eccentricities of the place -- can become a sort of psychic centre, a common focus for the people who seek love and vision and daily bread there. We've gone for that focus, that centre. There's a lot in this book. As you know, the past is entwined with the present. These pages release only some of the best-beloved stuff from The Sound's first two years. But within this anthology the "news" has become formalized. It's become entrenched. And that's all right. As the crazy poet Ezra Pound noticed: "Literature is news that stays news."

Title: Archaeological Research in Nootka Territory: Barkley Sound to the Alberni Valley

Year: 1980

Author(s): Alan D. McMillan

Type: Journal Article

Description:
The Nootka were the native occupants of Vancouver Island's rugged west coast and the adjacent tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Their highly maritime way of life, including the whale hunt and its associated ritualism, has attracted considerable scholarly attention. Prior to the recent expansion of archaeological activity on the Northwest Coast, models of prehistory were primarily drawn from the relatively extensive ethnographic literature. The Nootka figured prominently in such schemes, being seen by several writers as retaining relatively intact the basic patterns of Northwest Coast culture. The prehistoric development to this ethnographic culture was, however, virtually unknown. While little archaeological research has yet taken place in Nootka territory, in a few locations a picture is beginning to emerge. In particular, the excavations at Yuquot and Hesquiat on Vancouver Island and at Ozette on the Olympic Peninsula are providing detailed local chronological sequences. This article describes results of field-work carried out in the summers of 1973 to 1975, directed by the author and Denis St. Claire.

Title: Archaeological Investigations in the Alberni Valley

Year: 1975

Author(s): Alan McMIllan; Denis E. St. Claire

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Introduction: This report is intended as a descriptive summary of archaeological research directed by the authors near Port Alberni, British Columbia in the summer on 1973. Fifteen weeks of field work yielded the first excavated data on the prehistory of the Alberni Valley. One of the research goals was to investigate archaeologically the published comments of Franz Boas (1890) and Edward Sapir (1913, 1915) indicating, on liguistic and ethnographic evidence, that Nootka culture has only recently displaced an earlier Gulf of Georgia orientation in this area. This article deals only with the 1973 excavations although subsequent work has been carried out by the authors on the same site.

Title: The Investigation of Fort Defiance: A Report on the Preliminary Excavations

Year: 1972

Author(s): Donald H. Mitchell; J. Robert Knox

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Results of preliminary excavations at the 1791-92 winter quarters of Captain Robert Gray and the Columbia have been reports in part. The earlier publication presented evidence that confirmed the location of Gray's Fort Defiance about three miles north of Tofino on the shore of a small cove in Lemmens Inlet, Meares Island. As the prospects for continued examination of the site have become uncertain, it now seems desirable to report results of the 1968 excavations without further delay. This paper describes surface aspects of the site, features disclosed by excavation, and the artifact assemblage recovered.
