Aboriginal Experiences

The Haida people of Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) are welcoming and happy to share their culture with others.

Experiencing Haida culture, with its rich history and strong modern community, is a large part of the Haida Gwaii experience.

Evidence of the community's pride, talent, and beauty is everywhere on the islands – in the form of buildings, artwork, etiquette and everyday items, and behaviour.

Many local companies offer day, multi-day or custom tours of the islands that take in various Aboriginal sites on the island, and explain their historical and/or modern day importance.

One of the most significant Aboriginal sites to visit on Haida Gwaii is SGang Gwaay, a UNESCO World Heritage site that features one of the last authentic examples of a west coast First Nations village. The village still has totem poles standing where they were first erected hundreds of years ago.
