Kitasoo and Xaixais people live in the village of Klemtu on Swindle Island on the Central Coast. They are two distinct tribal organizations – the Kitasoo originally from Kitasu Bay and the Xai’xais from Kynoc Inlet. Kitasoo/Xai’Xais Territory covers land and sea, totalling 3,939 square kilometres. Their territory is bordered by windswept island groups and narrow channels on its west coast. Deep valleys, long fjords and Pacific Coast Range Mountains are found in the east. Their territory is home to the Spirit Bear Conservancy.
