Home to about half of the 1500 Haisla people, Kitamaat Village sits at the head of the Douglas Channel in British Columbia. Living and working on the water has always been important to the Haisla–and it still is.
The Haisla people have lived off the land and water resources of the Douglas Channel and our traditional territory for hundreds of years. It will continue to be the heart of everything we do.
The Haisla people are centered on Kitamaat Village (or “Tsee-Motsa” in the Haisla language, meaning “Snag Beach”), home to about half of our people and about 10 kms from Kitimat (pop. 9000) and about 45 kms from the airport at Terrace.
The balance of the Haisla lives elsewhere in the region or in Greater Vancouver.
