Description From Owner:
  • After the Clayoquot Indians, whose name has been given a remarkable range of translations. G.M. Sproat (see Sproat Lake) said that it meant 'another [i.e., different] people,' while Dr. Brown (see Brown's River)
  • thought that it meant 'other or strange house.'
  • The missionary Father Brabant told Captain Walbran that Clayoquot meant 'people who are different from what they used to be,' and he noted a tradition that these Indians were originally quiet and peaceful but later became quarrelsome and treacherous.
  • A modern linguist, John A. Thomas of the Nitinahts, says that it means 'people of the place where it becomes the same even when disturbed.'
  • John Jewitt, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, described the Klaa-oo-quates as 'fierce, bold and enterprising.'
  • Clayoquot was first known to white men as Port Cox, after John Henry Cox of Canton, who backed several fur-trade ships sent to this area.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
