Ditidaht First Nation

The land, the waters, the resources, the environment have always been the source of life, culture and spirituality of the Ditidaht People.

Clear air, pure water and the food of the forests and the waters of our Territory have sustained our people, our economy and our traditions.

That we hold the wealth of our Nation and the use of our lands, waters and resources in the future as we did in the past, to the common good and benefit of all Ditidaht, by fostering development that is based on the principle of caring for and maintaining our physical and spiritual linkages with our lands, waters and resources for all generations.

Our territory

Ditidaht traditional territory is large. It stretches inland from Cowichan Lake, down through Nitinat Lake, and to the coast between Bonilla Point and Pachena Point. Our territory also reaches out to sea all the way to the salmon, halibut and cod banks that feed our people. It includes the headwaters of streams and rivers that drain to the coastline.
