I am Earl Maquinna George. I am a Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations person, and the hereditary chief, as the mamat’n’i (outsiders, especially white people) call us, of the Ahousaht people. Europeans have called us Nootka.
Chief Earl Maquinna George, hereditary chief of the Ahousaht First Nation of Clayoquot Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island, presents his compelling life story, told in his own words.
