"We are the Ka:'yu:'k't'h'/Che:k:tles7et'h' (pronounced Kie-YOU-cut and TSHEH-kleh-szet) First Nations. Our home is on the Pacific west coast of Vancouver Island. Our territory stretches from Porritt Creek, north of Nootka Sound, to Solander Island at the tip of Brooks Peninsula; inland to the height of land and seaward to the point where you can no longer see land while standing in a canoe.
The Kyuquot/Checleseht region is accessible only by air or water.
