“The We Wai Kai Nation”, (a.k.a.:”Wewaikai First Nation”, the “Cape Mudge First Nation” and the “Cape Mudge Indian Band”), is the band government of the We Wai Kai sub-group of the Laich-kwil-tach (Legwildok, Euclataws, Yucultas or, “Southern Kwakiutl”) group of the Kwakwaka’wakw Peoples, based on Quadra Island, offshore from Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada. They are on the east coast of Vancouver Island, at the northern end of the Strait of Georgia. The Laich-kwil-tach include: the Wei Wai Kum People who are organized as the Campbell River First Nation and the Kwiakah Nation, whose traditional territory is in the Discovery Islands to the northeast of that city and on the adjoining mainland coast. All three, are part of the Kwakiutl District Council, a tribal council which includes other Kwakwaka’wakw bands, who are farther northwest in the Queen Charlotte Strait region and on northern Vancouver Island.

“We, the We Wai Kai embrace our language and culture to build a proud, healthy, safe and self sufficient community. We support and encourage each other to thrive, through following the footsteps of our ancestral history, as stewards of our lands and waters, while balancing our role in modern day society.”
