For thousands of years the Hupacasath people have owned, used, and occupied their traditional territory on Central Vancouver Island. The Hupacasath are comprised of three distinct tribes, the Muh-uulth-aht, Kleh-koot-aht and Cuu-ma-as-aht (Ahahswinis). The territory is approximately 229,000 hectares, which engulfs the whole Alberni Valley. The boundaries for this territory are basically the mountain peaks from the Alberni Valley, which start from the north at Mt. Chief Frank, from the south at 5040 Peak and Hannah Mountain, from the east at Mt. Arrowsmith and Mt Spencer, and from the west from Big Interior Mountain.[[Introduction text copied from the Hupacasath "Treaty - Background" webpage: http://www.hupacasath.ca/treaty/background.html]]
