About the Guide
In 2006, the Council of Ha’wiih (Hereditary Chiefs) from Nuu-chah-nulth Nations decided that attracting Nuu-chah-nulth youth to marine-based jobs and careers was an important priority for our communities.
Located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in more than 20 different locations, Nuu-chah-nulth Nations have always been an ocean people. Yet changes and history have distanced us from our resources.
Working on behalf of the Council of Ha’wiih, Uu-a-thluk staff and contractors created this Career Guide —first in print and then digitally —to show the many ways Nuu-chah-nulth can continue to make a living in and around the ocean.
