Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, is an archipelago in northern British Columbia. Approximately half of the population are First Nations Haida people. A reserve you must visit is the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve. Within its borders is SGang Gwaay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s where you will find one of the last remaining examples of a First Nations village. There are totem poles still standing from centuries ago.
The local First Nations people are passionate about sharing their culture through tours and immersion experiences. Near the reserve, the Haida Heritage Centre is also a must-visit, as it houses many displays and artifacts highlighting Haida history.
