different community, and join the five day celebration along the shores of Discovery Passage from August 5-10th. We will travel to Nuu-chah-nulth lands, to the Tse-shaht First
Nation to participate in traditional food gathering activities, and then Opitsaht—a community of the Tla-o-qui-aht people, located at the SW end of Meares Island in Clayoquot Sound.
