The Klahoose are one of the three groups comprising the Tla'Amin or Mainland Comox. The other two divisions of this once-populous group are the Homalco and Sliammon (which is a corruption of "Tla A'min"). The Klahoose are governed by the Klahoose First Nation and their main community is also called Klahoose, which is located at the head of Toba Inlet. Before the Laich-kwil-tach migration to the Campbell River area, Klahoose traditional territory extended from there to Cortes Island though the latter is now also claimed by the Kwiakah, one of the four main groupings of the Laich-kwil-tach.
