Haida Gwaii is an archipelago located off the northwest coast of British Columbia. The name means “Islands of the people” in the Haida language, and the Indigenous peoples who live here have a deep ancestral connection to the land and sea. Haida Gwaii is also known as the “Galapagos of the North” for its remote and ancient rain forests, stunning shoreline, rich and diverse wildlife, and ancient history and culture.

The underlying theme running through all permanent exhibitions is the complex link between the land, the sea, human beings and the Supernatural Beings that give Haida Gwaii its incomparable natural and cultural character. Every object, art work and archeological piece offers a narrative focusing on its aesthetics, construct, cultural use, and history as derived from our focus on community-based research.
