HECATE, on the north coast of Nootka Island in ESPERANZA INLET, 110 km across VANCOUVER ISLAND from CAMPBELL RIVER, is the former site of a NUU-CHAH-NULTH (Nootka) village. It sat at the entrance to McBride Bay, which had a SALMON CANNERY and SAWMILL in the 1920s and 1930s; LOGGING continued to be a mainstay. Hecate was named after the survey ship commanded by Capt G.H. RICHARDS during 1860–62.
