The Tlatlasikwala Nation is a First Nations government located near Port Hardy in the Queen Charlotte Strait region of northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia. We are the descendants of the Tlatlasikwala, Nakumgilisala and Yutlinuk peoples. Our Territory covers the lands and waters of northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada. Our home village is at beautiful Bull Harbour on Hope Island. Our peoples originated from spiritual places in our Territory, places we hold sacred today. Our peoples numbered in the thousands until contact with sailing vessels 200 years ago. We had no immunity to the introduced diseases. Today the survivors number 65 and we are working hard to re-build our community.
