The Hišuk ma c̕awak Integrated Resource Management Plan (HIRMP) is a Huu-ay-aht led initiative in partnership with C̕awak ʔqin Forestry and Mosaic Forestry Operations to create a new system of land and resource management that takes a look at the entire ḥahuułi (traditional territory) instead of the western approach of addressing land management by tenure.

Huu-ay-aht is most concerned with managing the lands in a sustainable way for the next 7 generations and in accordance with our sacred principles of ʔiisaak (respect), ʔuuʔałuk (taking care of) and Hišuk ma c̕awak (everything is one). With this in mind Huu-ay-aht is looking for citizen feedback – this survey provides information about the current state of affairs and what work is being done related to the various values, and to solicit citizen input to identify priorities & focus areas for the HIRMP.

The questions contained in this survey have been designed to inform the Huu-ay-aht First Nations’ Government about citizens’ priorities and concerns around the management of the lands. Community feedback will be used to adjust how various areas are being managed moving forward.

Following extensive consultation with its citizens, Huu-ay-aht First Nations is pleased to announce the upcoming development of its Hišuk ma c̕awak Integrated Resource Management Plan (HIRMP).

The HIRMP is a coordinated plan for forest and environmental management in the Nation’s entire ḥahuułi (traditional territory of the hereditary chiefs). It represents the present and future needs of the ecosystem and the Nation. Its namesake sacred principle, Hišuk ma c̕awak, acknowledges the many interconnected aspects considered and incorporated into the plan.
