At Tofino Resort + Marina, we respectfully live and play inside the ƛaʔuukʷiʔatḥ – Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation.

NAAʔUU, a limited event series, is a new Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation initiative designed to engage visitors with Tla-o-qui-aht culture through food, art, song and dance. You are invited to gather inside the Tin Wis conference centre which has been transformed to look and feel like a traditional longhouse.

Named after a Nuu-chah-nulth word that translates to “come together” and “feast,” naaʔuu includes a delicious dinner that celebrates traditional coastal cuisine. The event includes Tla-o-qui-aht drumming, songs, and presentations including specially produced performance masks along with a west coast inspired menu. Salmon, shellfish, vegetarian, and other locally inspired cuisine from the Heartwood Kitchen and Tla-o-qui-aht food suppliers await ticket buyers.

The three-hour event, will run over multiple evenings in March:

  • Mar 9, 6 – 9pm
  • Mar 15, 6 – 9pm
  • Mar 16, 6 – 9pm
  • Mar 18, 6 – 9pm

  • Mar 24, 6 – 9pm
  • Mar 25, 6 – 9pm

Following the Nuu-chah-nulth principles of his-shuk-nish-tsa-waak (we are all one), naaʔuu welcomes everyone to come feast together in Tofino.
