The Mamalilikulla First Nation’s territory encompasses the islands off the north east coast of Vancouver Island between Alert Bay and Knight Inlet, including Compton, Village, and Gilford Islands.
Mamalilikulla First Nation
The Mamalilikulla First Nation is an amalgamation of two distinct tribes, the Mamalilikulla and the Wiumasgum-Qwe’Qwa’Sot’Em.
These two tribes were wrongfully amalgamated by the Federal Government in the late 19th Century.
The Nation is currently pursuing a legal division which will result in the separation of the two tribes and their present territory.
