Title: Alberni garbage causes stink.

Year: 2004

Author(s): David Wiwchar, Ha-shilth-sa Newspaper

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
Tseshaht Chief Councillor David Watts is fuming over the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District's decision to expand the McCoy Lake garbage dump without consulting the First Nation that borders the site. The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD) wants to increase the size of dumping area within the landfill's current borders. In order to do this, new run-off and wastewater pipes have to be installed at a cost of $1.5 million. According to ACRD Public Works Co-ordinator Sean McGinn, the expansion of the dumping area is something the region already needs, and the ACRD will be negotiating with other island communities to accept 20 tons of garbage per day, which equals one dump truck load, and raise funds through tipping fees. \The revenues generated would cover the infrastructure costs and we wouldn't have to raise local taxes or current tipping fees

Title: Hot Springs Cove gets new phone service and generators

Year: 2004

Author(s): Denise August, Ha-Shilth-Sa

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
Hot Springs Cove - Hesquiaht members in Hot Springs Cove can now enjoy upgraded and more affordable phone service, says Band Manager Nancy VanHeest. Prior to 1999, the people of Hot Springs Cove had virtually no means of communication to the outside world. The Band Office had a single line Autotel phone that served both as a non-private business phone and fax line for the entire administration staff. In the 'lobby' area was a radiotelephone that community members could use to make calls, all with long distance charges. It too was not private and users were on the honour system, expected to record the time, date and number they called for billing purposes. Needless to say, many calls were unrecorded...

Title: Report on the Clayoquot Sound Research Consortium Survey

Year: 1998

Author(s): Josie Cleland

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
A survey to gauge the level of interest in development of a Clayoquot Sound Research Consortium was circulated to 594 researchers and non-government organizations. The response rate of the survey was 7.5%. From comments received it appears that the membership-based consortium model proposed would not succeed due to financial constraints at institutions, however individuals who expressed interest in the concept, the variety of research opportunities available in the region, the existing field station infrastructure and the opportunity to offer direction to research in Clayoquot Sound will be valuable contacts in the future."

Title: The House in Northwest Coast, Nuu-chah-nulth, Society: The Material Structure of Political Action

Year: 1989

Author(s): Yvonne Marshall, Department of Archaeology, SFU

Type: Book Chapter

Description:
This paper examines the relationship between the material and sociopolitical expressions of the house among the Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootkan) people of Vancouver island. The term 'house' is used in this paper as the Nuu-chah-nulth use it, to refer to both a dwelling and the household which occupies a dwelling. It is suggested that the Nuu-chah-nulth balance their open, flexible social structure with a highly formal ranking structure, materially expressed in the spatial ordering of household space. The socially ambiguous, it is argued, attains clear definition in the context of its material manifestation. The paper examines the role of the well known plank dwellings of the Northwest coast in the definition and maintenance of social order in Nuu-chah-nulth society. It begins with an outline of social organization, then discusses how the dwelling is used to validate and oomplement social order.
