Our Canoe Has Landed

The Nisga’a Museum will provide a fitting home for showcasing internationally significant Nisga’a artifacts. In addition, the museum will be a centre for research, learning, and creating new works of art. Multipurpose space will host cultural performances and provide international researchers with the opportunity to conduct original research. The Nisga’a Museum is destined to become a focal point for cultural tourism in northwest British Columbia.

Peter McKay Recognized

Traditional Talent

Cherie Mercer is a smart and talented business woman who is turning her gift for designing and creating clothing, floral decorations and traditional aboriginal crafts into highly prized works of art.

‘Sky River Creations’ is Cherie’s business specializing in a wide selection of distinctive wreaths, crosses and heart shaped floral designs that express sympathy and comfort to bereaved families.

Developing Economic Opportunities for Youth

Fourteen Nisga'a youth in the Nass Valley will be finishing a pilot program aimed at building young entrepreneurs for the area this month. With the help of facilitators, participants are learning the skills and qualities needed to be successful in today's business.

The program started in the late spring. It includes eight days of instruction over the course of the program. Information is also available online.

Nass Area Strategy

The Nass Area covers almost 27,000 square kilometers. About 8% of this area is Nisga'a Lands. Nisga'a Lands roughly correspond to what people think of as the Nass Valley from Nass Camp to the coast. The Nation owns Nisga'a Lands and has control over development on them. The Nation also has substantial rights to consultation over proposed developments in the rest of the Nass Area.

Improving Communications Across the Nation

A strong nation requires an informed population. Over 70% of Nisga’a citizens live outside the Valley. Of these fifty-four percent live in areas served by an urban locals. Nearly one in five do not. Staying informed is tough.

The Nisga’a Network is a collection of websites which support community, communication, collaboration and learning. Using modern technologies means that Nisga’a citizens - wherever they live - can, for example, easily access news and information, check the Cultural Calendar and participate in committee work without always having to travel.
