Council of the Haida Nation

For millennia, Haida people have occupied their Traditional Territory of Haida Gwaii, a group of more than 200 islands based 100 kilometres off BC’s north coast. This territory encompasses parts of southern Alaska, the archipelago of Haida Gwaii and its surrounding waters. It is home to the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, the first national park co-managed by a First Nation and the federal government. The Haida Nation has also negotiated recognition and protection of Haida interests and cultural practices on its Traditional Territory.
