The Kitasoo/Xai'xais (pronounced "high hice") peoples are two distinct cultural groups that make up Klemtu's First Nations population.
Elders say that their ancestors have lived in Kelmtu and the surrounding geographical area since the end of the ice age. Today, the Kitasoo/Xai'xais peoples share their culture, traditions, and respect for nature with visitors to Klemtu.
Wilderness and Cultural Tours
Spirit Bear Adventures, owned and operated by local First Nations peoples, offer interpretive guided tours of Klemtu's beautiful wilderness, abundant wildlife, and numerous sites of cultural significance. Current research has identified and documented more than one hundred ancient cultural sites, including abandoned villages and culturally modified trees within the 5000sq km/3000sq mi traditional territory of the Kitasoo/Xai'xais peoples. Interpretive tours highlight the hatchery; the Big House, a traditional structure with carved and painted totems; and the museum/gallery, which features a small selection of local artifacts and artwork.
