Resource Stewardship

The Maaqutusiss Hahoulthee Stewardship Society was founded in 2012 by Ahousaht Ḥaw̓iiḥ to exercise stewardship and sustainable management of ʕaḥuusʔatḥ haḥuułii (Ahousaht territory) in a way that balances ʕaḥuusʔatḥ cultural values, ecological integrity and the social and economic wellbeing of ʕaḥuusʔatḥ musčim.

The ʕaḥuusʔatḥ Ḥaw̓iiḥ, as represented by MHSS, have declared sovereignty and decision-making authority over our haḥuułii and have assumed much responsibility for planning, managing and protecting ʕaḥuusʔatḥ lands, waters and resources.
