The rugged lands of Northern BC have a rich and diverse First Nations history. 

The totem poles of the north coast are the most famous symbol of the Aboriginal culture, but many spectacular First Nations attractions are located in the region. Art, culture and heritage sites exist in the same natural settings where First Nations have lived for thousands of years.

Cultural sites in Northern BC have drawn worldwide interest – the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, with more than 500 archeology exploration areas, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
