Description: This thesis investigates the significance of traditional ecological knowledge to forest use and management in Clayoquot Sound BC, with specific reference to the traditional territory of the Ahousaht First Nation (one of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations on the west coast of Vancouver Island). My goal is to develop an understanding of the ways in which the Ahousaht have traditionally used the forest, and to consider how traditional knowledge and practices might provide a basis for sustainable forest use within the context of current trends in resource management in the area.
