Vancouver Island Locals
A little taste of home.
Many who travel to Vancouver Island can feel the ancient and palpable energy that flows through the ancient land. There are a lot of really special spirits who call these territories home that can't be found anywhere else. Many of the beings here are off-shoots of races that were brought over by settlers, but there are many that have been here long before mankind ever left their mark on these archipelagos.
The geographically diverse Vancouver Island and Coast region contains mountains, fertile agricultural lands, beaches, ancient rainforests, rivers, fjords, and archipelagos, which make up the traditional territory of many Coast Salish groups: Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Wuikinuxv, Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw, and Da’naxda’xw in the northern mainland portion of the region adjacent to Queen Charlotte Sound; Quatsino, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwak’awakw on north and central Vancouver Island; Ditidaht, Pacheedaht, Saanich, Beecher Bay [Scia’new], Malahat, Nanoose [Snaw-naw-as], Songhees, Sooke [T’sou-ke], and Hul’qumi’num on southern Vancouver Island.
We recognize those who were here long before our colonizers and stand with the Coast Salish groups. We honour them by ensuring the spirits we work with do not come from closed practices found around our shared island home.
