Aweetnakula means “one with the land and sea” in Kwakwaka’wakw (one of the languages spoken by the people of K’ómoks First Nation). This phrase sums up the philosophy and direction of future development in K’ómoks territory, which has grown from the relationship we have had with the lands and sea since time immemorial, building on the past and developing a roadmap to new opportunities. Building upon this philosophy, the K’ómoks First Nation has taken a proactive approach to planning, which has included an award-winning Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) as well as the creation of a Developer Guidelines and Protocols booklet. This article outlines the approach that has been taken by the K’ómoks First Nation to ensure that the bountiful relationship with their land continues.
