The Toquaht Nation is one of the smallest First Nations in terms of membership within the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, and is the smallest amongst the Central Region First Nations. Despite its small size, the Toquaht Nation has been a leader within the NTC and the Central Region First Nations through active political leadership, business savviness, cultural initiatives and as a proponent of the Maa-nulth Treaty.
All the Toquaht Wilderness Resort lands border the Toquaht First Nations Treaty Lands. The development team at Toquaht Wilderness Resort is pleased to partner with the Toquaht First Nations People on continuing to develop infrastructure and services in the area, and look forward to being good neighbors into the future.
Pronounced “Toe-Kwat”, the Toquaht First Nations people derive their name from a Nuu-chah-nulth word meaning:
”people of the narrow place in front,” or ”people of the narrow channel.”
