Many artifacts and current activities stem from the existence of the Nuu-chah-nulth tribe of the Salish First Nations who were the ancestors to this area of Vancouver Island for thousands of years. Much of their life revolved around traditional hunting methods, cedar tree (totem poles, canoes, woven baskets). Current arts and crafts and ancient artifacts in the museum can be found in Port Alberni still.
The introduction to the white explorers occurred in the late 1700's and settlers would emerge to take claim to the salmon (fishing) and forestry potential in the area during the 1800's.
