Haida Heritage Centre at Kaay Lingagaay
The Haida Heritage Centre, at the old Haida village site of Kaay Llnagaay (which translates to “Sea Lion Town”), showcases the unique living culture, art, and 12,000-year human history of the Haida. Fronted by six imposing totem poles, the oceanfront complex resembles a series of longhouses. It includes the Haida Gwaii Museum with extensive exhibits and audio-visuals, a gift shop, the canoe house, carving shed, and performing house. For the full effect, dine on Haida-style food at the café. For those who are unable to visit the remote villages sites, an orientation to their history and importance to the Haida are given at the Centre.
