What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Nuuchahnulth language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Nuuchahnulth (Nootka) tribe and their society. Please note that the Nuuchahnulth and other
American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Nuuchahnulth history is interesting and
important, but the Nuuchahnulth 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 issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Nuuchahnulth link to add.
Also, please note that the name "Nootka" is considered offensive by some Nuuchahnulth people today, though others continue to use it to refer to
themselves. "Nuuchahnulth" is the correct tribal name, but we have included the name "Nootka" on our site as well simply because it is still in use by
some tribal members and we wish to be as inclusive as possible,. We hope this does not cause offense to anyone.
