For textual materials that relate to Frederick Dally's 1866 tour of inspection with the colonial administration, in which Indigenous communities around Vancouver Island were visited, see file MS-2443.9 described as "Memoranda of a trip round Vancouver Island and Nootka Sound on board H.M.S. Scout, Captain Price A.D. 1866..12 pp." In many instances, outdated and derogatory terms and attitudes are present in this account by F. Dally to describe Indigenous people and communities.
