Old Massett is located on Graham Island’s north shore, the largest and most northern island of Haida Gwaii. It is home to Xaada families who once lived in villages spread throughout their territory. Five dialects of Xaad Kil languages are still spoken by residents. Haida people have sustained a rich culture closely connected to land and sea. Their territory is home to giant old growth cedar, spruce and hemlock, rare bird colonies, abundant sea life, and 1,068 salmon populations.
