People of the Coast
The Coastal First Nations-Great Bear Initiative is a unique alliance of First Nations working together: To protect our coast and improve the quality of life in our communities.
Our member nations include Wuikinuxv, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo Xai’xais, Nuxalk, Gitga’at, Gitxaala, Metlakatla, Old Massett, Skidegate, and Council of the Haida Nation.
Our communities occupy the Northern and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii areas of BC – reaching north to the Alaskan border and as far south as Vancouver Island. This region is the unceded Traditional Territories of more than two dozen First Nations.
