– “Care takers of the ‘land of plenty’ since time immemorial”
Long before European settlers arrived on Vancouver Island, the K’ómoks First Nation. The area was long known as the "Land of Plenty", which stretched from what is known today as Kelsey Bay to Hornby Island. The nation had a rich relationship with the land, which was abundant in salmon, shellfish, deer, elk, fish, berries, plants--everything the nation needed to care for their people. The land not only provided for their needs, but inspired their arts and culture as well.
We encourage all visitors to step back in time and learn about the history, stories, and atwork of the K’ómoks people during their visit to the Comox Valley.
