Haisla

Haisla Nation Council

Haisla (the name means “dwellers downriver”) people have occupied lands for about 9000 years. Neighbouring nations include the Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv bands of the Coast Tsimshian peoples.

Today’s Haisla Nation is an amalgamation of two historic bands–the Kitamaat of the Douglas and Devastation channels and the Kitlope of the upper Princess Royal Channel and Gardner Canal. 

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.
