Title: A Cultural Analysis of Faunal Remains From Three Archaeological Sites in Hesquiat Harbour, BC

Year: 1980

Author(s): Sheila Gay Calvert

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
This study examines the proposition that among the prehistoric hunter-gatherers of Hesquiat Harbour, west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the geographical area exploited, and hence animal resource selection, was controlled by land use patterns limiting local groups to specific tracts of territory. It suggest that the interaction of the land use system with the environmental diversity of Hesquiat Harbour creates a sub-regional level of resource specialization recognizable in archaeological sites as variation in emphasis on animals from different habitats among the faunal assemblages. A specific proposition, developed from pertinent ethnographic and environmental information, relates land use patterns with a specific pattern of diversity among the faunal assemblages from three archaeological sites, DiSo 1, DiSo 9, and DiSo 16. The emphasis on different habitats one would expect to find at each site was predicted. The faunal assemblages, comprising 49,770 skeletal elements and 135,777.4 grams of shell, are described and compared, using relative frequency of skeletal element count and shell weight. The differences and similarities are discussed in relation to sampling and preservation factors, local environmental change, season of exploitation, change through time in material culture and habitats exploited. A statistically significant association of assemblages with different habitat emphases is found to account for the major proportion of the inter-assemblage variation. Observed patterns of habitat emphases are compared with those predicted. Actual emphases in the assemblages of DiSo 16 and DiSo 1 are positively correlated with the predicted patterns , but those of DiSo 9 differ. The differences are consistent with demonstrated local environmental change and a wider territory of exploitation. The analysis suggests that a simple, autonomous local group level of sociopolitical organization was present in Hesquiat Harbour at least 1,200 years ago and demonstrates that the natural environment defined by socio-cultural organizational factors is an important influence on regional faunal assemblage patterning on the Northwest Coast.

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: Biogeoclimatic Units of Central and Southern Vancouver Island

Year: 1979

Author(s): K. Klinka, Ministry of Forests, Vancouver Forest Region, Vancouver; F.C. Nuszdorfer, Ministry of Forests, Vancouver Forest Region, Vancouver; L. Skoda, Canadian Cartographics Limited, 508 Clarke Road, Coquitlam, B.C. V3J 3X2

Type: Book

Description:
Ecosystematic classification at the biogeoclimatic level has been refined further in that a new category, the biogeoclimatic variant, is described. Also, the ecological significance of biogeoclimatic units is substantiated by statistical treatment of climatic data. It is repeatedly shown by the analysis that the zonal ecosystems are reliable predictors of regional climate. A comparison of teh annual actual evapotranspiration of biogeoclimatic units, suggested as an index of plant activity, is carried out. The ost characteristic features of each biogeoclimatic zone, subzone, and variant are described with the aid of photographs. The distribution of these units on central and southern Vancouver Island is shown on a map produced at teh scale of 1:500 000.

Title: Assessment of 1979 Herring Spawnings in the Meares Island Section of Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia

Year: 1979

Author(s): C.W. Haegele; D.C. Miller

Type: Report (published)

Description:
In the Meares Island section of Clayoquot SOund, herring spawn mainly on extensive beds of eelgrass. A diver survey of herring spawnings was conducted in 1979 to obtain the best possible estimate of egg deposition because estimates obtained from surface surveys seemed unrealistic. The survey showed that 3.7859 x 10(raised to the)12 eggs were deposited on 4.0028 x 10(raised to the)6 meters squared area. The large Elbow Bank had 50% of this spawn on 35% of the area. Sea grasses occupied 94% of the spawn area. Most of the spawn area was subtidal.

Title: Cleland Island Ecological Reserve

Year: 1976

Author(s): R. George; D. Clark

Type: Paper

Description:
First paragraph: Cleland Island is the outermost island in Clayoquot Sound on the western shore of Vancouver Island. It has a land area of 19 acres with dimensions approximately 200 yards by 400 yards and a maximum elevation of approximately 60 feet. The island has been protected as a wildlife refuge for some years and was established as the first Ecological Reserve in British Columbia in May 1971. These actions were undertaken to protect the island in recognition of its importance as a seabird nesting and colony site. The island is the site of a number of continuing studies of indigenous seabirds.

Title: An Analysis of Use, by Waterfowl, of Tideflats in Southern Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia

Year: 1973

Author(s): David F. Hatler

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: Pacific Rim National Park was established "to preserve the significant natural features of the Pacific coast and (to) provide opportunities for compatible recreational and interpretive activities." Among the significant natural features in this area are the large numbers of waterfowl which seasonally use the rich, shallow water inlets of southern Clayoquot Sound. The inclusion of the McLean Point-Grice Bay area within park boundaries was at least partly to provide sanctuary for these waterfowl. During the fall and early winter of 1972-73, as part of an avifaunal survey of Pacific Rim National Park, a study was carreid out in the above area. The objective was to: determine extent and manner of use by waterfowl of tide flats within the Park boundary and relate it to that of similar areas neighbouring the Park boundary.... The results of the work are presented here. It should be mentioned that though the general term "waterfowl" has been used in the foregoing paragraphs, it is really geese which have been the center of attention in this area. In past years when access was difficult, the dedicated waterfowlers who traveled to Tofino went for geese. Present day inlet reminiscences dwel on geese. Citizen concern for dwindling "waterfowl" populations has focussed on geese. And if I went out today and scared up a mixed flock of 1000 ducks and 50 geese, my consciousness would be riveted on the geese. Perhaps not all of us have the same reasons, but I think that in the final analysis, most of us are biased to geese. This report, which is largest about geese, is a response to (or perhaps a reflection of) that bias.

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.

Title: Status of the Caspian Tern in British Columbia

Year: 1971

Author(s): R. Wayne Campbell, University of British Columbia

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Prior to the 1960s, records of Caspian terns (Hydroprogne caspia) in British Columbia were few. With the increased interest in birdwatching during the past decade and the establishment of a small breeding colony of these terns on the Washington coast in 1957, 68 records of this bird's occurrence in the Province have been gathered and are presented in this paper. All records, with pertinent information, are listed. Caspian terns can now be considered rare summer visitants to the southern coast of British Columbia and casual in summer in the south central Interior.

Title: Observations on the distribution and migration of some seabirds off the outer coasts of British Columbia and Washington State, 1946-1949

Year: 1969

Author(s): P. W. Martin; M. T. Myres

Type: Journal Article

Description:
This paper puts on record a series of observations of seabirds made by Patrick W. Martin off the outer coast of British Columbia while fishing during the years 1946-1949. Because of the fact that they extend over four seasons, the observations not only provide previously unavailable information on the regional and seasonal distribution of pelagic seabirds within 100 miles of the Pacific Coast of Canada, but also indicate the period of migratory passage of several species of seabirds along the outer coast of British Columbia.
