The Mamalilikulla are based on northern Vancouver Island, in the Queen Charlotte Strait region. Our people are now scattered all over Vancouver Island, western Canada and the United States. Our administrative base is in Campbell River.
The Mamalilikulla territories are situated at the mouth of Knights Inlet and the western section of the Broughton Archipelago, mainly on ʼMimkwamlis (Village Island).
It is a key goal of the Mamalilikulla Guardian Watchmen Program to reassume and maintain our traditional stewardship responsibilities in our territories, and to re-establish and enhance the public respect for our marine resources and environment that has been lacking in recent decades.
As part of our Guardian Watchmen Program, Mamalilikulla has been monitoring marine activities in the territories, carrying out ecological research as part of the Nations’ marine planning activities, hosted Guardian Watchmen training programs for Ha-ma-yas participants, undertaken crab, prawn and commercial clam harvest monitoring, monitored the Loxiwe clam garden, and engaged in public communication and outreach.
