Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Kwakiult

The Kwakiutl were a group of closely related Native North Americans who inhabit the north of Vancouver Island and the adjacent mainland of British Columbia, Canada. They, together with the Nootka make up the Wakashan branch of the Algonquian-Wakashan linguistic stock. Kwakiutl culture was typical of the Northwest Coast area.

Numbering around 15,000 before European contact, they are now reduced to around 4,000 and are mainly engaged in fishing and farming.
