Gitxsan Culture at 'Ksan Historical Village

If you're travelling in Northwest BC, the 'Ksan Historical Village & Museum is a stop that should not be missed! I recently visited the site and was really impressed by the tour that I received. The tour will cost $10 instead of the $5 fee for just wandering around, but it's WELL worth it!

 

My tour guide showed our small group into each of the 3 clan houses where an audio tour led us through each part of the detailed displays. My favourite was the Fireweed house, which featured the masks, clothing, and props used in ceremonies and celebrations - keep an eye out for the one-horned goat!

 

After our tour, I visited the site's museum and gift shop. Did you know that this was the very first First Nations museum in the country? Me neither!

 

I really enjoyed my first visit to the ‘Ksan Historical Village, and I’ll definitely be going back again soon!
