A few notes about our home...
ʔi:mot tətᶿ kʷənome It’s good to see you!
Welcome to the traditional Klahoose Nation territory, which extends from Yekwamen (yɛkʷamɛn) or Toba Inlet to the northern islands of the Salish Sea and Desolation Sound. Our resort lies within the territory of the Klahoose Nation and in proximity to its sister Nations: the Homalco, Kwakiutl, and Tla’amin. Our Nation’s permanent community resides in Squirrel Cove, on Cortes Island.
Your comfort is important to us. We aim to provide a service standard that reflects our natural, authentic ways, and to offer our guests a memorable experience. We believe that we are only one aspect in the great diversity of life on the land. Since time immemorial, we have used formal protocol to acknowledge our surroundings, which was meant to honour our spiritual beliefs. This acknowledgment includes or specifies water, ancestors, animals, and plant life, all of which are considered to be alive and therefore having a “spirit.” Our ancestors knew and believed that everything in nature is connected, that nothing can exist in the environment for, or by itself as everyone and everything depends on one other.
We are honoured to welcome you to our home.
Thank you ~ č̓ɛč̓ɛhaθɛč
