— ■— ABOUT THE WEST COAST
THE Indians of the West Coast of Vancouver Island are principally of the Nootka and Kwakiutl tribes, the former
predominating.   Although the influence of civilization has had much to do with changing the mode of living of these
aborigines, much remains to show that in earlier days they were a highly cultured race, enjoying a normal and happy
existence and making the best use of the means of living which nature had put into their hands.
Even today the dugout canoes, cut from a single log of fir, are the most seaworthy of small craft, and widely used
up and down the coast. At Kyuquot Village, Indians come out through the surf in their canoes, to take off mail and
baggage from the steamship.
Still remaining are many examples of Indian totem poles for which the natives of the North West Pacific Coast
have always been noted. At Friendly Cove, near the entrance of Nootka Sound, are several interesting examples of
this weird Indian art. The grotesque figures of the totem poles symbolize characters and events in the legendary history
of the tribes, and some more recent examples have been interpreted to include a figure representing Captain James
Cook, who with Lieutenant Bligh (later Captain Bligh of H.M.S. "Bounty" fame), first visited Friendly Cove in 1778.
The Indians of this district are still noted for their skill in basket weaving and
offer their wares for sale to tourists at various wharves along the way.
The strange practice of shaping the head by means of strapping a board across
the child's forehead has been discontinued, but a few examples resulting from this
unusual custom are to be found amongst the older members of the tribes.
On the shore of the Tahsis Canal, through which the ship proceeds north from
Nootka Inlet, may be seen an Indian grave, surmounted by a small house and surrounded by a tiny stockade; a method of burial which is still common with the
Indians of the district.
On the whole a jovial and carefree people, these Indians offer an interesting
study. Many opportunities for meeting these people are afforded to travellers during this leisurely and picturesque cruise along the Pacific Coast.
V
#     *-.
THE West Coast may well be called
the Canadian Norway, with its rugged
and deeply indented coast line, and
mountainous, heavily-timbered slopes that
drop sheer into the water. Little villages
are found along the fiord-like bays and
inlets, devoted to fishing and lumbering;
Indian settlements, too, and interesting
totem poles with curious Indian folklore.
It is a country without railways, automobiles, moving pictures or electric light; to
all intents and purposes the same as a
hundred years ago, with the exception of
a few modern fishing plants at isolated
and widely-separated ports along the coast.
Historical interest in the West Coast
centres on Nootka Sound, which was first
visited by Captain James Cook in 1778,
who made Friendly Cove, at the entrance
to the Sound, his headquarters for
further exploration. Lieutenant John Meares visited Nootka in 1788
with two ships, constructing a small trading post. He and his men
were later captured and imprisoned by Spaniards, which action nearly
precipitated war between England and Spain; but after numerous
diplomatic .exchanges an agreement was reached called the Nootka
Convention, by the terms of which Spain formally acknowledged
England's sovereignty in Northwest America.
Captain George Vancouver was sent out by the British Government in 1792 to Nootka'to take formal possession of the territory,
and the record of his meeting with the Spanish Commander, Bodega y Quadra, will be found in the book
of Captain Vancouver's voyages. Two sentences from
his journal with reference to the West Coast are of
particular interest: "To describe the beauties of the
region will, on some future occasion, be a very grateful task to the pen of a skilful panegyrist.
The serenity of the climate, the innumerable pleasing landscapes and the abundant fertility that unassisted Nature puts
forth, require only to be nourished by the
industry of man, with villages, mansions,
cottages and other buildings,
to render it the most lovely
country that can be imagined."
ry       , H ON THE WEST  CORST
1. VICTORIA, B.C. Leaving Victoria, the beautiful Capital
City of British Columbia, in the evening, steamship proceeds through the
Strait of |uan de Fuca, with the snow-capped Olympic Mountains of
Northern Washington, on the left, arriving at Port Renfrew in the early
morning hours.
2. PORT RENFREW Port Renfrew is situated at the head
of San juan Inlet and at the mouth of the San juan and Cordon Rivers, a
small but beautifully situated village, the principal industries being logging and salmon canning. There is excellent trout and salmon fishing in
season, and good opportunities for shooting bear, deer, goose, duck or brant.
3. BAMFIELD Shortly after leaving Clo-oose we pass Cape
Beale, marking the entrance to Barkley Sound, and arrive at Bamfield, an
Imperial Government cable station, being the terminus of the "All-Red"
cable to Australia and New Zealand via Fanning Island. Bamfield was
named after W. C. Bamfield, who came to the West Coast on the H.M.S.
"Constance" in 1846 and was later appointed Indian Agent. The longest
portion of the "All-Red" cable lies between Bamfield and Fanning Island—
3,540 miles. The cable was first successfully laid in 1902, but with the
rapidly increasing business of later years it was found necessary to lay
an additional cable. Bamfield is the Lifeboat Service station for the
West Coast.
4. UCLUELET Ucluelet Harbour is a well sheltered Inlet, about
five miles long, situated at the west end of Barkley Sound and protected
from the Pacific swell by several outlying islands. It is the base of a
large fishing fleet and has several fine lakes and small rivers in the vicinity,
which offer good sport to the angler, and some delightful gardens. Ucluelet
proper lies on the west side of the harbour, while directly across on the
east side is Port Weeks.   Ucluelet wharf on the west side is at the end of
the now partially completed Ucluelet-Long Beach-Tofino road, which when completed, will be an extension of the Vancouver Island main highway, giving access
to Long Beach, twelve miles long and one-quarter wide, probably one of the finest
ocean beaches in North America.
5. CLAYOQUOT SOUND Three hours' steaming from Ucluelet
brings us into Clayoquot Sound, a name taken from the Indian word, "Another"
or "Different." Calls are first made at Tofino; then at Clayoquot on Stubbs
Island, two miles across the Sound. Clayoquot is situated on a long, half-moon,
white sand beach, running out to a long spit, and a pleasant walk of about a mile
through the woods brings one to the open ocean on the other side of the island.
Clayoquot is the headquarters for a large fishing fleet. On leaving Clayoquot, a call
is made at the Roman Catholic Indian Mission School at Kakawis and several
fishing plants in Matilda Creek before proceeding to Nootka.
6. NOOTKA SOUND This Sound, one of the largest and most
beautiful on the West Coast, was discovered by Capt. James Cook in 1778, who
landed at Friendly Cove, a charming inlet at the entrance to the Sound, named
by the Indians "Yukquot" or "Yucuat," derived from "Yukwitt" to blow with
wind; "Ant," people or village, meaning "a village exposed to the wind." Nootka
is probably the most interesting historical port on the West Coast of North
America. Captain Cook first named the Sound "King George's Sound," this being
later changed to Nootka. He was hospitably received by Chief Maquinna of the
Nootka Indians. Friendly Cove was again visited in 1788 by Lieut. John Meares,
in the ship "Felice," who erected a small trading post and built in the same
year the first vessel to be built on the West Coast of America. A small Roman
Catholic Church now stands on the spot where this vessel was built. It was at
Friendly Cove that Capt. Ceorge Vancouver met Bodega y Quadra, the Spanish
Commander, and formally took possession of the lands for Great Britain in
August, 1792. A few miles further up the Sound is Nootka Cannery where,
after a brief stop, the steamship proceeds through a beautiful narrow
passage between the mountains, called Tahsis Canal.
7. ESPERANZA INLET This large Inlet was also discovered
and named by Capt. Cook in 1778. Calls are made in the Inlet at Ceepeecee, Port Tahsis, Zeballos and Espinosa, before passing again into the
open sea en route to Kyuquot Sound.
8. KYUQUOT SOUND A call is sometimes made at Cachalot, a former whaling station, now converted into a fish reducing plant—
one of the largest on the coast. Calls are also matte at Chamiss Bay, and
at the Indian Village of Kyuquot. There being no wharf at the latter
port, landing is made by boat. Passing a maze of rocky islands at the
entrance of the Sound, the ship now rounds Cape Cook, off which point
may be seen Solander  Island, the home of a large colony of sea  lions.
9. QUATSINO SOUND The first call is at Winter Harbour,
near the entrance on the north side; then a few miles further on Quatsino
Village. The ship then proceeds down the southeast arm to Port Alice, the
terminus of the voyage and the site of a large pulp mill. After a stay of
several hours at Port Alice, the homeward voyage commences. Before
leaving the Sound a call is sometimes made at Spry Camp, at the extreme
end of the north-west arm, which is entered through a beautiful narrow
tidal channel.
