Title: Modelling Nuu-chah-nulth Land Use: The Cultural Landscape of Clayoquot Sound

Year: 1998

Author(s): Monica Karpiak

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
This thesis concerns land use and land tenure among the Aboriginal people resident in Clayoquot Sound. I begin by discussing the system in practice among the Nuu-chah-nulth as described in the ethnographic and ethnohistoric literature. From this synthesis, I develop a tabular summary of land use by physiographic areas of Clayoquot Sound. The next step entails testing the parameters of the summary of Nuu-chah-nulth land use to determine if it conforms to the archaeological record of Clayoquot Sound. I propose two land use models to compare spatial patterning of known archaeological sites to those recorded as the ethnographic pattern. First, I translate all components of the land use summary onto the landscape to create the Cultural Landscape Model. Its function is to predict the types of archaeological features that would be found within each physiographic setting, based on land use activities described in the ethnographic and ethnohistoric literature. The second model is the Habitation Site Model; its sole function is to predict the locations of habitation sites. Developing models from the ethnographic and ethnohistoric record brings together several strands of research material. The amount of data dedicated to the synthesis is best organized using geographic information systems (GIS) software. Given its parameters, the Cultural Landscape Model explains the known archaeological record suggesting there is some antiquity to the ethnographic pattern of land use. In lieu of a sustained and extensive excavation program that would prove otherwise, the Cultural Landscape Model can confidently predict the geographic location of archaeological features. In contrast, the Habitation Site Model showed little conformity with the archaeological record. Few archaeological sites inferred as former habitation sites coincided with areas the Habitation Site Model identified as favourable. While disturbing, such results are still valuable as they can inform future research. The objective that arises from the apparent weakness in this model is to refine its function by identifying the confounding variables and correcting for them. This thesis demonstrates that a multi-stepped approach to modeling land use, using ethnographic and ethnohistoric sources as a starting point, can inform archaeologists about ancient land use. Combined with a rigorous field program, land use models may help us find archaeological signatures of Nuu-chah-nulth land use and land tenure in Clayoquot Sound. A long term objective is, of course, to determine whether the land use and tenure described by early observers is consistent with Nuu-chah-nulth lifeways prior to contact.

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.
