About The Haisla Nation

The Haisla, known as the "dwellers downriver," hold a deep ancestral connection to their lands. Presently, the Haisla community finds its heart in Kitamaat Village, situated at the head of the Douglas Channel in British Columbia. Within this village reside approximately 700 of the 2023+ Haisla members, while others can be found in locations like Kitimat, Terrace, Prince Rupert, the metro Vancouver area, and even the United States. The Haisla Nation comprises the Kitamaat and Kitlope bands, along with neighbouring Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv bands. Living off the land and water has always been vital to the Haisla, who sustain themselves through these resources. Preservation for future generations is a shared commitment, as these resources provide sustenance, shelter, and livelihood, preserving their heritage and paving the way for the future.
