SG̱ang Gwaay

Sep 05, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Toward the southern end of Haida Gwaii sits the remnants of SG̱ang Gwaay, a village that was inhabited until the late 1890s when it was abandoned due to the small pox epidemic. The village is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, part of the Canadian National Park System, and a Haida Heritage Site. It was also the base of our operations today.
