Terrace: Ancient culture, important traditions

Kitselas and Kitsumkalum people have lived in the Terrace area for thousands of years

The First Nations people of Northwestern B.C. have lived in the area for thousands of years.

With a rich culture and deep history, the original inhabitants of this land offer many opportunities for authentic First Nations experiences.

The Kitselas and Kitsumkalum people, tribes of the Tsimshian Nation, have lived in the Terrace area for thousands of years. The individual Indigenous communities neighbour the city with Kitselas to the east and Kitsumkalum to the west.

This website details some of those cultural opportunities, and we’d suggest that you also check out this website for more information about the Nisga’a Nation.

There were some travel restrictions to First Nations communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Be sure to check with community websites when planning your future visits to determine accessibility.
