A Very Special Cultural History
The Ucluelet First Nation, also known as the Yuu-tluth-aht First Nation is the First Nations band government of the Yuu-tluth-aht people in the Canadian province of British Columbia, located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island on the northwest side of Barkley Sound. It is a member of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council. The Ucluelet First Nation is part of the Nuu-chah-nulth cultural and language family.
The Yuu-tluth-aht First Nation’s main village is located at Ittatsoo, across the bay from the town of Ucluelet. The Nation’s territory is located at the northern gateway to Barkley Sound with open access to the Pacific Ocean. Being a member of the Nuu-chah-nulth Maa-nulth Treaty Nations, the Yuu-tluth-aht is currently organizing around a post-treaty environment, and actively pursuing social and economic development. The following introduction to the community is posted on the Nation’s website (www.ufn.ca), one of the most comprehensive and well-maintained community websites in the region.
