About Kitsumkalum Galts’ap

Kitsumkalum, a Galts’ap (community) of the Ts’msyen (Tsimshian) Nation. Our connection to the land, the rivers and the ocean is central to our social, cultural, and political life and helps maintain our ideologies as Kitsumkalum and as Tsimshian. Our Chief and Matriarch names are attached to the land, defining the territories of our house groups and rooting us firmly in place.

These roots are strong and can never be broken: roots that stretch back through time, allowing us to always maintain our connection to our ancestors; burrow deep, keeping us connected to the land, its resources and to our culture; and always reach forward into the future, providing a sense of place, home and identity for our children and future generations to come.

Our home combines both coastal and inland areas covering 5,941,000 hectares. Coastal areas begin at Portland Inlet in the north, extending south through Chatham sound, and include important sites around Edye Pass and down Grenville and Principe Channels.
