"Out of the Mist: Treasures of the Nuu-chah-nulth"
1999-07-03 until 2000-04-03
Royal British Columbia Museum
Victoria, BC, CA Canada

From hereditary chiefs, families, and communities, from prestigious museums around the world, and from the Royal BC Museums own collection, important artifacts are being gathered in Victoria for an historic world premier exhibit on the culture and heritage of the Nuu-chah-nulth nation.

We are honoured to present to visitors of the Royal British Columbia Museum our long and proud history. On behalf of the hereditary chiefs and all Nuu-chah-nulth people, we extend a warm welcome.

Archaeological excavations at Yuquot in Nootka Sound present scientific evidence that the history of the Nuu-chah-nulth goes back at least 5,000 to 7,000 years.

Many of the artifacts and stories in this exhibit, which we proudly have named HuupuKwanum Tupaat Treasures of the Nuu-chah-nulth Chiefs, tell of the long continuity of our culture. We are therefore grateful to all individuals and organizations who have contributed to this presentation.

There is a great deal to learn about the history of the Nuu-chah-nulth people and their territories. Because this outstanding exhibition will contribute to that understanding, we are most appreciative of your presence and to RBCM for making it all possible.

The Hereditary Chiefs, Councils and People of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations
