The people of Vancouver Island's 'NAMGIS First Nation travel in traditional canoes on an expedition through the traditional territory of their people, a territory that goes back thousands of years. Everything they are comes from their land, and their territory defines them in their spirit, songs, dances and their relationship to the land that has sustained them for thousands of years.

In 1997, they signed a statement of intent to negotiate a modern-day Treaty with the Government of British Columbia and the Government of Canada. As Chief Bill Cranmer of the 'NAMGIS FIrst Nation states, "One of our real strengths is our culture and I think with that strength we can really show British Columbia and the rest of Canada that we are distinct people and that we need to be recognized as distinct people"
