ABOUT US

 

Gitxaała territories  stretch from  the Nass river to Aristazabel Island, on the north coast of what is now British Columbia. The Gitxaała , also known as Git Lax M'oon, people of the saltwater  are one of the most ancient societies on the coast. The village of Lach Klan (Kitkatla, BC) has been continuously inhabited since time immemorial. Gitxaała hereditary leaders from the four clans, Gisputwada, Ganhada, Lax'sgiik and Laxgibuu, manage and protect their territories and resources according to their ayaawx, traditional laws. Gitxaała harvesters use almost 100 different marine and terrestrial resources to feed their community. Gitxaała citizens, currently numbering 1992,  wherever they reside, celebrate their history, practice their traditions, respect their laws, and cherish their lands, waters and resources.
