"Contemporary settlement patterns, the styles, economic occ upations, social organization, political developments and ceremonial activities are analyzed against a background of how these forms have evolved, especially during the last century for which we have adequate documentation. It is shown that while there has bene substantial innovation in terms of material culture, technology and political institutions, there has been a great deal of continuity in the types of social interaction observed, and the values and ideals shared in the community. Commercial fishing now dominates the economy of Kyuquot but as an occupation, this implies no break with thepast." - from the abstract.
