Blunden Harbour is a small harbour and native Indian reserve located on the mainland side of Queen Charlotte Strait, roughly 25 kilometres to the northeast of Port Hardy.
The people who lived here referred to themselves as the 'Nak'waxda'xw, and are known historically as the Nakoaktok. In 1964, the community voted to relocate to Port Hardy after the Canadian Department of Indian and Northern Affairs threatened to cut off support for housing, education, and services if they remained in their isolated location.
Blunden Harbour was also home to a famous school of Kwakwaka'wakw artists. The most notable being Willie Seaweed.
