Heiltsuk Culture and History

As a complement to our Heiltsuk language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Heiltsuk tribe and their society. Please note that Heiltsuks and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Heiltsuk history is interesting and important, but the Heiltsuk Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
