Campbell River has a population census of 35, and has long been touted as "the Salmon Capital of the World". The first settlers known in the area were members of the Island Comox and related Coast Salish peoples. During the 18th century a migration of Kwakwaka'wakw Kwak'wala -speaking people of the Wakashan cultural and linguistic group migrated south from the area of Fort Rupert and established themselves in the Campbell River area, at first enslaving and then absorbing the Comox, and became infamous as raiders of the Coast Salish peoples farther south, known to history as the Euclataws, which is also spelled Yucultas and is a variant on their name for themselves, the Laich-kwil-tach , Lekwiltok or Legwildok. The captain and his botanist, Mr Archibald Menzies , discovered a small tribe of natives who spoke the Salish language.
