The number of people living in Gwa-yas-dums Village on Gilford Island, and the number of households, has varied over the years. Approximately 27% of the total membership currently lives in Gwa-yas-dums. In the village, two geographic areas have been designated for residential use, including the southern portion of the current village site, and the upper village which is south of the main part of the village. The intention is that the upper village will serve as a necessary land-base for future housing development.
