Kyuquot from the air

An image of an aerial view of the Kyuquot village. According to the documentation included with the filmstrip, the description of the image states "Kyuquot from the air. You can see Walter's Island and out into the Pacific Ocean. The next Island to the right is Aktis Island, the ancestral home of the Kyuquot Band. In the early 1800's the Kyuquot Band was the largest on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. However one night in 1855 the Clayoquots, enemies to the Kyoquots, surprised the Kyuquot Village on Atkis Isl., cut off the heads of the Kyuquot warriers, took the women as slaves, and set fire to the village. Most of the village was destroyed during this, the last tribal war fought on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. A few years ago most of the Kyuquot Band left Atkis Island and moved into Walter's Cove."
