First Nations languages
Chances are that while you are visiting Tofino you'll encounter a sign, placard, or notice transcribed in a First Nations language. It's good to see these as evidence of the way in which local indigenous culture is valued, appreciated, and maintained in the 21st century.
The photo is from an exhibit that was on display as the Kwisitis Visitors Center in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. They also have several "listening stations" where you put on headphones to listen to recordings of local First Nations People tell stories of their lives and culture in their own language, along with modern English translations of the same.
Check Out the Boards
The way to find things, or find out about things going on, is the boards - the one outside the Co-Op, and the one inside the Common Loaf Bakery are the two most common ones used. Looking for a used surfboard, a place to live, random junk, yoga lessons, a bike, an event - look here first.
