Support Indigenous and connect to Tla-o-qui-aht Culture at the Tin Wis.

Tin Wis is within Tla-o-qui-aht Ḥaaḥuułi and the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks, and like the ancestral village site that existed here for tens of thousands of years, the 85-room beachfront hotel stands facing one of the oldest highways on earth – the ocean. Connected to this deeply storied place, Tin Wis Best Western Resort’s own evolution relies upon the resilience of the Tla-o-qui-aht people, ancestral land and identity, and the perseverance of Cultural Lifeways as well as the Indigenous laws which protect biological diversity.

Tinuwis means calm waters, and, like much of the Tla-o-qui-aht language the name is more verb than noun, expressing how the waves calm as they enter this protected cove which continues to be a haven for birds, paddlers, guests and the local community.

Tin Wis Resort invites ethical travelers to connect to Tla-o-qui-aht culture, support Nation building efforts and Tribal Parks Allies, and experience the effect of the area’s calming waters.
