Learning about the roots of the place you are visiting is part of experiencing the culture. In Tofino, that means taking time to hear the generational teachings of the Nuu-chah-nulth.

There is a long history and active present-day Indigenous population in Tofino (known as Načiks) and surrounding territories. 

For the Tla-o-qui-aht and Ahousaht Nations, storytelling is a big part of how teachings are passed down through the generations. Take part in the Indigenous experiences on offer, from art galleries to wildlife tours and gain a rounded perspective of this surf town. 


One way to honour culture is to learn the language of the people whose land you are visiting. One easy word in Nuu-chah-nulth, Tla-o-qui-aht dialect, is čuu (“choo”), which means “goodbye.”
