Journey with our Ancestors

Walk. Learn. Experience.

Inhabited by Huu-ay-aht ancestors for more than 5,000 years, Kiix̣in is the only known remaining complete traditional First Nations village on the southern BC Coast with significant standing house remains and is commemorated as a National Historic Site.

The area is rich in history and significance for Huu-ay-aht. If you would like to learn more about it, follow this link to our Kiix̣in History page.

Now you can hike the trail to Kiix̣in while you explore the west coast of Vancouver Island’s pristine old growth-rainforest and beautiful protected beaches and share in the Huu-ay-aht’s knowledge, history, and culture.

You can check out more details at www.kiixin.ca.
