Gitga'at

The Gitga’at are working to achieve an ecosystem-based approach to land and resource management that recognizes the interdependence of the community’s cultural, spiritual and economic wellbeing and the health of the lands, waters and resources in Gitga’at Territory.

From the beginning of their time, the Gitga’at people have existed in their Territory, dependent upon its abundance and richness. The wellbeing of the Gitga’at community is intricately related to the health of their lands and waters and the abundance of resources therein. The Gitga’at are committed to an approach to land and marine use planning that reflects and emphasizes the need to sustain this relationship.
