Come and begin to understand why Yuquot (Friendly Cove) has such special meaning to the Mowachaht / Muchalaht people and is considered as the centre of the world for all Nootka First Nations on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Yuquot means “where the winds blow from many directions”. Which enabled 13 tribes to gather during the summer harvest season as one large confederacy of strength, commerce and hospitality? This rich culture continues today with the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nations opening up the Yuquot Historic Village site for the entire world to come and experience their history and culture. Yuquot village has been designated as a National Historic Site.
