Hundreds of extremely rare photographs of Hesquiaht are currently being formatted and made available to view on hesquiaht.org. While all of these photographs portray Hesquiaht people, places and events, it is important to note that they are simply just a small glimpse in a much greater holistic cultural context.
Some of these photographs have elder audio recordings attached. These recordings identify the photographs and add important historical information. The recordings also tell stories and give insight to the joys and struggles Hesquiaht's faced so long ago.
Upcoming Photograph Collections:
