'Ksan Native Village and Museum
Pioneer Day - August
The First Nations of the northwest coast 'Ksan existed in the Hazelton region for over 7,000 years (the Gitksan and Wetsuwet'en band / people resided in this area specifically where the Skeena River and the Bulkley River meet).
Eventually in 1866, white settlers arrived in Hazelton near the upriver terminus until 1913. Established for a fleet of sternwheelers, which plied the wild rapids of the Skeena bring supplies to mines, farmlands and nearby settlements, this area sprung up as one of the earliest in Northern BC and one that survived until the railway found its way there - then everything changed. Today, it thrives on the tourism and unique friendly community that continues to keep up the 'old Hazelton' feel.
