Visit The Centre

Through the Ḵay Llnagaay Heritage Centre we celebrate the living culture of the Haida people. Through our language, art and stories we share our relationship with the land and sea- that which shapes, nourishes, and sustains us.


Ḵay Llnagaay protects and fosters Haida culture by reaffirming our traditions and beliefs, encouraging artistic expression and serving as a keeper of all that we are. Ḵay Llnagaay is a place for the Haida voice to be heard. This is our gift to the world.
