Located in the Village of Hazelton, the First Nations Historical Village - 'Ksan - is an amazing sight to see. The area is home to the Gitxsan and
Wet’suwet’en people and is full of magnificent history of the people and the region. One of these sites that help to maintain history is the Historical Village of 'Ksan.
In my most recent visit to the Hazeltons I made a stop here and was extremely pleased to see what was there. I had read a lot about the area and talked to many people, but visiting the site first hand was definitely an amazing experience. There is so much history there and the stories that we were told about the people, their culture, and the area was incredible!
They also have weekly dance and story-telling performances for people to
enjoy. I unfortunately was not able to catch one of these performances,
but I hope to be back out there again sometime soon to take the tour
again and to catch one of these performances. They have amazing history
there that I suggest everyone learn about no matter who you are or where
in the world you may live.
You don't have to be familiar with the cultures at all as they provide a full tour with detailed information at a very reasonable price. I will continue to recommend 'Ksan to many more people heading that direction as I have nothing but good things to say about my experience there. It was definitely worth the visit!
