Photograph of a First Nations Peoples settlement consisting of wooden built buildings alongside the banks of the Cowichan River on the east coast of Vancouver Island. In the foreground is a canoe in which are seated two people facing the viewer.
The Cowichan or Quamichan is a nation of the Coast Salish peoples from Vancouver Island. The settlement is situated along the side of the Cowichan River which provided fish as a major part of the diet for those living there. The name derives from the translation of 'Qu'wutsun' meaning warm place.
