Yí Yáu! Hello!

We are Qqs Projects Society, a Heiltsuk charitable non-profit located in Bella Bella, BC - the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. Our organization has a holistic mandate to support Heiltsuk youth, culture, and environment.


Qqs is focused on creating opportunities for Heiltsuk youth and families to learn on the land and from the land. Our programs range from the community of Bella Bella throughout Heiltsuk territory, spanning the social, cultural, and natural values and customs that have strengthened our people since the time of Creation.

Qqs Youth Programs seek to provide Heiltsuk youth with opportunities to experience social and educational success, feel confident on the land and water, build a strong sense of cultural identity, and feel supported in their path to community leadership.

At Qqs, we believe cultural education is vital. We work to incorporate cultural identity and nurture cultural resurgence through programs on the land and water. We aim to lead culturally inspiring programs to negate the years of oppression for a new era of reconciliation.

Qqs Community Programs seek to meet community-identified needs, and uplift community-rooted strengths and leadership that we believe to be the path to a vibrant and resilient future for our people.

Qqs Environmental Programs use a mixture of Traditional Ecological Knowledge and western science to promote an understanding, build connection, and support responsible stewardship of Heiltsuk lands, waters, and resources.
