Pacific Rim History
The Nuu-chah-nulth tribe were one of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast in Canada, that settled in the Pacific rim National Park area.
The Nuu-chah-nulth tribe are master mariners and whale hunters who were present in the Pacific rim National Park Area for thousands of years before the park's establishment
The first event that contributed to the declaration of Pacific Rim national Park happened in 1930, when land was reserved for federal government approval as a site for a west coast national park
The government later cancelled the reserves, however, in 1948-1966, The Pacific Rim National Park establishment was again discussed and it became a provincial park in BC
In 1966-1968, British Columbia offered to hand over the provincial park as the main focus of a national park, and the Provincial and Federal governments are now equally sharing the costs and revenues.
Pacific Rim National Park was officially established in 1970s as Canada's first National Park Reserve.
