The K’ómoks are an Indigenous group of peoples located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They have a rich cultural heritage and history, with a deep connection to the land and natural resources of their traditional territories. Today, the K’ómoks continue to assert their sovereignty and work towards the preservation and growth of their culture and way of life.
The territories of the K’ómoks people include a large area on Vancouver Island, from around Comox Bay near the town of Comox, north to Oyster Bay, and northeast to the southern end of Knight Inlet.
The K’ómoks are part of the Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwakiutl) cultural and linguistic group. Other First Nations within this group include the ‘Namgis, the Kwaguilth, the Haida, the Nuu-chah-nulth, and the Heiltsuk, among others.
We’ve added links below to a number of websites that provide much more information on the many events and activities of the local First Nations.
