Thank you for visiting Ditidaht Places.

Ditidaht Places is produced by Ditidaht Community School, in collaboration with Mapster Tech

ƛ̓ekoo ƛ̓ekoo to the many late and current Ditidaht Elders and Knowledge Holders who have shared their knowledge of Ditidaht places. The place names shared on our map are among many that have been recorded by Ditidaht Elders, including during a place name research project conducted with anthropologists Dorothy Kennedy and Randy Bouchard. ƛ̓ekoo ƛ̓ekoo to Ditidaht linguists Dorothy Shepherd and Deborah Mack for sharing place name transcriptions, and to Dorothy for her place name pronunciations.

In addition to speaking with their Elders and families, students have consulted sources including the Ditidaht First Nation Traditional Use and Occupancy Study, archival documents, photographs, and studies in archaeology, ethnography, and ethnobotany.
