Today’s Haisla Nation is an amalgamation of two historic bands – the Kitamaat of the Douglas and Devastation channels and the Kitlope of the upper Princess Royal Channel and Gardner Canal. The Haisla, meaning “dwellers downriver,” are centered in Kitamaat Village, which sits at the head of the Douglas Channel in British Columbia. Kitamaat Village is home to about half of the 1,700 Haisla, with the balance of the Haisla living elsewhere in the region or in Greater Vancouver.
