    Area Data

    Officially designated as a National Historic Site, Kitwanga (Gitwangak) is where the Kitwanga River converges with the Skeena River in northern BC along the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37, just four kilometers north of the Yellowhead Highway 16. This Northwest First Nations village holds complex cultural sites and structures—absolutely worth spending time to appreciate the art and culture of this area. Plentiful parks offer scenic hiking tours that showcase the beauty of the Kitwanga River Valley.

    With a population of around 480, the primary employers are Kitwanga Forest Products, Kitwanga Elementary, and Meek Logging. The village has a community hall, post office, general store, restaurant, recreation complex, ballfield, RV park, trail system, ambulance station, and two churches.

    The Kitwanga River, a biologically rich salmon system, drains into the middle Skeena approximately 250 km from the coast. During the winter of 2003, the Gitanyow Fisheries Authority, in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the BC Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection, constructed a salmonid enumeration facility (KSEF) to manage salmon and steelhead. The salmonid information collected on the Kitwanga River is also an index of salmon health for the entire middle Skeena River.

    Most people living in Northwest BC connect through waterways to the Skeena Watershed. The river rises in the northern interior of BC and generally flows SW into the Pacific Ocean at Chatham Sound, south of Prince Rupert. This watershed is a vital transportation corridor, a food source, one of the largest salmon spawning rivers in the world, and a critical habitat for other species.

    Recreation

    The Seven Sisters Provincial Park and Protected Area has exceptional natural settings with stunning glaciers capping the peaks. Hiking and snowmobiling are highly regarded front and backcountry activities. Many trails originate at Highway 16, including Oliver Creek Trail, Watson Lakes Trail, Hell's Bells Trail, Cedarvale Trail, Whiskey Creek Trail, and Coyote Creek Trails. Within the diversity of these trails, families, novices, and mountaineers find opportunities for easy hikes and picnics or challenging treks to the lofty alpine fields and peaks.

    This expansive area is a mecca for viewing and photographing wildlife. Multiple mountain goat herds frequent the peaks and ridges along with grizzly and black bears and raptors. In lower elevation areas, moose, mule deer, coyotes, and wolves inhabit natural openings, regrown vegetation in burned areas, and old logging cut blocks.

    The Kitwanga Mountain Provincial Park offers an environment unto its own. The mountain top is above the treeline and remains in a pristine natural state. Hikers are rewarded with extraordinary views of the Seven Sisters Peaks and the Skeena Valley.

    The Skeena River is renowned for world-class fishing, particularly salmon. Chinook, tyee, spring, chum, coho, pink and sockeye, and steelhead ply this essential river. With 5 million spawning salmon a year, the river is second only to the Fraser River's capacity to produce sockeye salmon. Plentiful rainbow, cutthroat, and Dolly Varden inhabit nearby lakes and rivers. It is no wonder that fish are also a top menu for bears! The rare and unique Kermode or Spirit bear lives in and near the Skeena Valley from Prince Rupert to Hazelton. Boating, floating, and paddling this waterway provides another element to immerse within the valley's beauty.

    History

    Historically, Gitwangak ("people of the place of rabbits" in the Gitxsan language) had long been a trade center for the northwest First Nations cultures and the settlers that pioneered the Kitwanga Valley. The culture and history are displayed at the Gitwangak Battle Hill National Historic Site, the remains of a fortified village occupied by the Gitwangak First Nation. The 'Ksan Historical Village and Museum exhibit nearly 600 items of ceremonial and utilitarian materials, showcasing the great diversity of the Gitxsan people. Many consider it one of the best places in BC to see many authentic totem poles within the township. The 1893 St Paul's Anglican Church and Bell Tower at Kitwanga landmarks are also iconic landmarks.

    The late Judith P. Morgan was a First Nations Gitxsan artist born in Kitwanga. Her father was a Tsimshian chief, and her mother descended from tribal leaders. Judith completed her bachelor's degree in art education in 1976 and began showing her work in the mid-1940s throughout Canada and the United States, receiving many prestigious awards and prizes.

    The Seven Sisters Mountain range area stimulated interest in mineral exploration since the late 1920s. Discoveries included veins with gold, silver, lead, and zinc, all in the headwaters of Oliver Creek. Exploration continued between 1968 and 1983, including aeromagnetic, gravity, magnetic, and geochemical surveys and trenching to expose bedrock in areas of interest. The only remnant of the area's mining exploration history is the roads and a few dilapidated buildings outside the Protected Area at the abandoned Magnetron Site.
