Chief's Domain


Salmon were the second most inportant food group next to sea mamals. This print represents the six different species of salmon in the territories of the First Nations People. Every river belongs to a head man or chief, hawilh. It was his tribe's responsibility to take care of his terrirory, hahoulthe. The customs of the Nuu-chah-nulth people demanded that the members of the tribe pay tribute, oumas, to the chief. This gave them access to his resourses in his territory. The word hahoulthe means all that is under the cover or blanket of a chief's domain. This print represents a hawilh's territory, his hahoulthe." -- Nytom (John Goodwin)
