Les terres accidentées du Nord de la Colombie-Britannique ont une histoire riche et diversifiée avec les Premières nations. Les totems de la côte Nord sont le symbole le plus célèbre de la culture aborigène, bien que de nombreuses attractions spectaculaires liées aux Premières nations se situent dans la région. Des sites d'art, de culture et de patrimoine existent dans le même cadre naturel dans lequel les Premières nations ont vécu pendant des milliers d'années.

Les sites culturels du Nord de la Colombie-Britannique ont suscité un intérêt au niveau international, la réserve du parc national de Gwaii Haanas et le site du patrimoine Haida, avec plus de 500 zones de fouilles archéologiques, sont des sites classés au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO.

Admirez d'impressionnantes sculptures par des artistes Haida réputés, tels que Bill Reid et Robert Davidson, ou visitez la grande collection de totems de villages de la vallée de Kispiox. Le village historique de ‘Ksan, la vallée de Nass et le parc Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed mettent tous en évidence la culture aborigène dans son environnement naturel.

Visitez des musées qui présentent des œuvres magnifiques d'art aborigène et des objets préhistoriques, ou admirez des totems qui ont été érigés il y a plus de 100 ans. Parcourez un village historique restauré afin de vous faire une idée de la vie traditionnelle des Premières nations de la région, ou explorez d'anciens pictogrammes et des sites archéologiques avec un guide des Premières nations.
