Anacla, BC — 

Friday was National Aborignal Day in Canada, when First Nations communties and culture was celebrated throughout Nuu-chah-nulth territory, and across Canada.

June 21 also served as the 50-year celebration of habitation in the village of Anacla. In 1969 the Huu-ay-aht established houses on the ancient site, where an earlier settlement was swiped out by a devastating tsunami in 1700. Over 100 came to Pachena Bay to enjoy the occasion.
