BARKLEY SOUND - The ancient Village of Kiixin was once home to the HUU-AY-AHT Government. Fifteen longhouses were built on the sacred land, which was designated as a "Historical Site" more than a decade ago.

Today, the history of the HUU-AY-AHT is also its future. Kiixin is the cornerstone of a new tourism strategy. The First Nation will partner with Parks Canada on the project. The village is adjacent to the world famous Pacific Rim National Park.

HUU-AY-AHT Chief Councillor Robert Dennis says the tourism strategy will cost more than sixteen million dollars and most of that money will flow from the Federal Government, through a Treaty that will be signed in just a few days.

The tourism and infrastructure project will pave the way for a new future for the HUU-AY-AHT, a future that includes creating their own opportunities.

The Village of KIIXIN is a window into the HUU-AY-AHT past and soon it will be opening doors to the First Nations future.
