History: The area was first inhabited by three native tribes, the Yutlinuk, the Tlatlasikwala, and the Nakumgilisala. The Yutlinuk died out in the early 1800s. In the mid-1850s, the Nakumgilisala and Tlatlasikwala amalgamated and moved to Hope Island. In 1954, numbering only 32, they joined with the Koskimo people and moved to Quatsino Sound. Today they are collectively known as the Nahwitti. From 1896 to 1907 about one hundred Danes established a tiny settlement at Fisherman Bay and farmed the meadow lands near Hansen Lagoon. Their intentions were to establish a self-governing, culturally distinct farming and fishing community, but the Provincial Government feared a backlash and withdrew their land lease and promise of building an access road. Following this decision, the settlers abandoned their farms and dispersed into the surrounding fishing and logging communities. Today, there are no inhabitants in the area.
