Culture

Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation culture is based on our deep, enduring connection to our lands, waters, resources and all living things. Although we all have our own origin stories of how we came to be, we are part of the larger Kwakwaka’wakw tribal grouping and speak the Kwawala language. We share many of the same stories, traditional knowledge, language and practices of other Kwakwaka’wakw peoples. In particular, we are a marine resource oriented culture and contact with the ocean and its resources is of great important our people.

It is the aim of all Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis members that our present and future generations will continue to uphold our cultural teachings, practices and laws in the pursuit of new economic opportunities and striving to carve a new path forward.
