The Nuu-chah-nulth Living Atlas is an interactive thematic atlas focused on the changing geography of Clayoquot Sound over time. For more information, download the information sheet (PDF).
Welcome to the Nuu-chah-nulth Living Atlas!
The Atlas supports an appreciation and understanding of the Nuu-chah-nulth term 'Hishuk ish tsawalk' or 'everything is one and all is interconnected'. This appreciation is achieved by tracking specific knowledge themes over time with different voices and information types.
