About Esquimalt Nation

We, the Esquimalt Nation, thrive along the sparkling waters of Esquimalt Harbour, our heritage, Xwsepsum or Kosapsum, woven into the land's rhythms for millennia. We cherish stewardship, reciprocating nature's generosity through heartfelt ceremonies, embracing this as our Sacred Trust.

As part of the Coast Salish group, we're a close urban community on enchanting southern Vancouver Island, with 314 spirited members tracing ancestry to resilient Lekwungen People. Embraced by Songhees Nation, Esquimalt Township, View Royal Town, and vibrant Victoria City, our cultural fabric is tightly woven.

Rooted in Lekwungen heritage, we're integral to the Coast Salish legacy. Ancestral echoes resound across these lands, from Vancouver Island's beauty to the tranquil Gulf and San Juan islands. Oral tales, legendary sagas, and timeless place names honour our deep connection to these sacred territories.
