Haisla

For hundreds of years, the Haisla people have traditionally occupied many village sites and used their territory, over 394,963 hectares (approximately 4million acres)  of land and water ways of that branch off from the Douglas Channel inlets on British Columbia's North Coast namely:

  • Devastation Channel to Gardner Canal leading into Kemano, Kowesas and Kitlope.
  • Devastation Channel through Ursula Channel to Fraser reach passing Monkey Beach, Bishop Bay to Butedale.

Our aboriginal rights and title have existed since time immemorial - the right to make decisions on how the land and its resources are used and the responsibility to steward the land and resources on behalf of this and future generations.
