Islands off the coast of British Columbia were in habited by the First Nations Salish tribes for over 5,000 years. The dense forest made for excellent shelter from winds and the red cedar was used to carve canoes and hand hewn beams for their long houses. The ocean and fresh water streams supplied plenty of salmon and trout. From the shore, otters, seals, sea lions and orca migrate through the area during various times of year.
It wasn't until explorers, such as Spanish explorer Dionisio Galiano in 1792, entered the watery coast line in search of the "New World" that the coastal region was identified for its abundant food resources, sheltered harbours and potential fur trading.
