The Tribal Parks Allies are a community of businesses committed to supporting the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation’s vision of achieving a socially and ecologically just conservation economy, where every dollar spent supports the ecological protection and restoration of the Tribal Parks ancestral gardens and the resurgence of Tla-o-qui-aht culture and governance.
It is important to us here at Hotel Zed that visitors to Tofino understand the history of guardianship and activism in this beautiful land that we all enjoy. So many tourists come in and out of this vibrant place and don’t learn more about the significance of these lands.
When you stay with us you will find a copy of a story in your room called, ʔiisaak in the Garden (Respect in the Garden). We commissioned this story in partnership with three local writers: Gisele Martin of the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation; Ian Gill, the CBC environmental reporter at the time of the Clayoquot Sound uprising; and Joanna Streetly, Tofino’s inaugural Poet Laureate. We hope you take the time to curl up with this story while you are here as it will give you a deeper connection to the history of Tofino and the land in which you are a guest.
Hotel Zed is committed to being Tribal Parks Allies and as part of this commitment we ask our guests to contribute 1% of their bill to the Tribal Parks Allies Program so the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation can continue the restoration and guardianship of their lands.
