Traditional Territories

Pauquachin First Nation holds existing title on three Indian Reserves in the Saanich Inlet basin on Southern Vancouver Island, with Coles Bay (Indian Reserve #3), Hatch Point (Indian Reserve #12), and Goldstream (Indian Reserve #13) (AANDC, 2015). For the Goldstream Reserve, Pauquachin holds a shared claim along with the Malahat, Tsartlip, Tsawout and Tseycum First Nations for traditional fishing purposes. Indian reservations were established as part of the 14 Douglas Treaties on Southern Vancouver Island, which were a colonial policy that recognized aboriginal possession of land.
