About This Park

Kitselas Canyon is located on the banks of the Skeena River on Kitselas Indian Reserve Number One. Designated a national historic site in 1972, it is a dramatic natural setting richly endowed with significant cultural resources, such as petroglyphs, totem poles, culturally modified trees and archeological remains. This location has been settled by Aboriginal peoples for approximately 5000 years. The Canyon is located in a strategic position between the interior and the coast, which helped it play a pivotal role in the west coast fur trade.
