Wei Wai Kum, previously known as the Campbell River Indian Band, is currently in Stage 5 of the BC Treaty Process. From 2014 to 2024, Wei Wai Kum and Kwiakah worked together to negotiate treaties. Prior to that, Wei Wai Kum, Kwiakah, and We Wai Kai were all part of the same treaty table, known as the Ligʷiłdaxʷ Treaty Society. However, in May 2024, Wei Wai Kum made the decision to pursue its visions and objectives as an individual Nation by advancing its treaty independently. 

The main residential community of Wei Wai Kum is situated in Campbell River. Additionally, there are several remote Indian Reserves located in the Ligʷiłdaxʷ territory, including those in Loughborough Inlet, Greene Point, and Matlaten. Currently, Wei Wai Kum has approximately 900 members.

The Community, Elected Chief and Council and advisors guide our Treaty Team and objectives to:

  • Recognize and protect aboriginal rights and title
  • Return lands to the Nations
  • Recognize Wei Wai Kum governance and jurisdiction
  • Provide a solid foundation, land base, and economic base that provide a better future for our members

In 2019, Wei Wai Kum reached Stage 5 – Negotiation to Finalize A Treaty.

The Nations 
territories are located 
around the mainland 
coastal watersheds of Loughborough and Phillips Inlets in the proximity of Campbell River and the lands and waters of 
what is now called Vancouver Island.

Historically, we had thousands of members. Due to the impacts of colonialism, today there are approximately 800 members of Wei Wai Kum
