  • “Húy̓at: Our Voices our Land” (www.hauyat.ca) is a multimedia exploration of Húy̓at, one of a network of culturally significant places of the Heiltsuk First Nation (Central Coast, British Columbia). The website is the result of an eight-year collaboration between the Heiltsuk Nation, researchers from Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, and Greencoast Media. We explore Húy̓at's history through interviews, archival documents, memory, language, and archaeology. These diverse kinds of knowledge and data are woven together and brought to life in 360° interactive virtual tours; videos of and direct quotes from Heiltsuk and other knowledge holders; a timeline; and archival stories, photographs, and recordings. This integrated approach aligns with Indigenous worldviews, in which connections among people and their history move fluidly across space and time. The website is a living archive and supports Heiltsuk efforts to assert rights and title to their traditional territories.
