The Transitions Gallery explores some of the difficult parts of our past – a past that includes devastating population loss, Indian Residential Schools and the marginalization of native peoples. It is a past that is still very much with us.
Museum at Campbell River respectfully acknowledges the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation, on whose traditional lands we work to preserve, interpret and share the collective human history of North Vancouver Island. The Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation is comprised of the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum and Kwiakah First Nations. Our closest neighbors are the Coast Salish Xwemalhkwu, Klahoose and K’ómoks First Nations.
These nations have close connections to the land where Campbell River is located today.
