Just north of Prince Rupert on BC’s North Coast, Metlakatla village sits on an ancient site. Metlakatla people have occupied and used the resources of the Skeena watershed, the Tsimpsean Peninsula and offshore islands, Work Channel, Portland Inlet and coastal areas around Prince Rupert for thousands of years. Community members continue to harvest land and sea resources for traditional foods and ceremonial activities. These include eulachon, salmon, clams, seaweed, octopus and medicinal and food plants.
