Language information

The people of the K'ómoks Nation have a traditional territory at the boundary of two of the major language families in British Columbia; to the north and west their neighbours speak Wakashan languages and to the south and east their neighbours speak Coast Salish languages. The families of the K'ómoks Nation have ancestors who spoke who come from the three linguistic traditions identified with their territory: Éy7á7juuthem (also called Comox), Pəntl’áč, and Kwak̓wala. Although the last K'omoks First Nation members who spoke Éy7á7juuthem and Pəntl’áč have passed away there are currently community members who speak Kwak̓wala.
