Wakashan is a culture in After the End. It is part of the Northwest Coast culture group.
Rather than a unified culture, Wakashan refers to a diverse group of tribes and peoples who are united by a similar language. The Makah of Cape Alava, the Nuu-Chah-Nulth of Upper Victoria, and the Heiltsuk of Bella Bella are only a few of these groups. Under threat of their peoples subjugation (or, as some suggest, even extinction) by Haida overlords, these people have come to band closer together for their survival.
