The Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay was a dream of the Haida peoples for decades before opening its doors in 2007 and hosting a grand opening event in August of 2008. The Haida Heritage Centre is located at Kay Llnagaay or “Sea-Lion Town”, an ancient village site. The Centre was designed to resemble the traditional oceanside Haida village that once stood in its place.
Through the Haida Heritage Centre at Ḵay Llnagaay we celebrate the living culture of the Haida. Through our language, art and stories we share our relationship with the land and sea that which shapes, nourishes and sustains us.
Ḵay Llnagaay protects and fosters Haida culture by reaffirming our traditions and beliefs, encouraging artistic expression, and serving as a keeper of all that we are. Ḵay Llnagaay is a place for the Haida voice to be heard. This is our gift to the world.
