• From the Metlakatla First Nation web site:

    Metlakatla village is a progressive community, located 5km north of Prince Rupert, on an ancient site – occupied for thousands of years by the Metlakatla people. Metlakatla means ‘saltwater pass’ in Sm’algyax, the language of the Coast Ts’msyen (Tsimshian). Today, Metlakatla members continue to enjoy their inherent rights and freedom to harvest traditional food, and honour our history on the land.
