Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Nootka

The Nootka are one of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest coast of Canada, and their language is part of the Wakashan language group. The term "Nuu-chah-nulth" is used to describe fifteen separate but related nations, such as the Nuchatlaht First Nation, whose traditional home is in Vancouver Island.

In pre-contract and early post-contract times, the number of nations was much greater, but due to smallpox the number of tribes was greatly reduced.
