Hul’q’umi’num’ / Halq'eméylem / hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓

"Halkomelem" is the name that linguists have called a group of related dialects spoken from around Parksville to Saanich Inlet on Vancouver Island and on the mainland from the mouth of the Fraser eastward to Harrison Lake and the lower end of the Fraser Canyon. The name "Halkomelem" is a blending of the names of the three dialects: Hul’q’umi’num’, Hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓, and Halq'eméylem. Hul’q’umi’num’ is spoken primarily by First Nations on Vancouver Island, Hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ is spoken by peoples between the mouth of the Fraser River and the Stave River and Halq’eméylem is spoken by First Nations from the Stave River up to the lower Fraser Canyon.[[57]]
