    Origin of place name: Village Bay was the site of a sizeable First Nations community and is currently a reserve of the Cape Mudge people of the Kwakwaka'wakw Fist Nation. According to the Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names: "An old trail and a stream link the bay to Quadra's networks of interconnected lakes. Loggers once floated logs down to this stream, ruining it for salmon and angering the residents of Yakwen, the village on the bay. To preserve their fishstocks they blew up the dam that had been built at the lake exit."
