Welcome to Hli Goothl Wilp-Adokshl Nisga’a, a name representing the four tribes that make up the Nisga’a Nation. The museum displays artifacts of all four peoples within its permanent exhibition, an assemblage of 300+ art objects that left the Nass Valley in the latter part of the 19th Century and early part of the 20th Century. During the struggle for our treaty, Nisga’a elders and leaders fought to ensure this scattered legacy would find its way back home. Now, housed in a permanent place of honour, this treasury of Nisga’a culture ranks as one of the preeminent collections of Northwest Coast aboriginal art.
The Nisga’a Museum is a museum of the Nisga’a people that is located in Laxgalts’ap, a village in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. The Nisga’a name means “the heart of Nisga’a House crests,” a name that celebrates the role of tribal crests in Nisga’a society,
The Nisga’a Museum has two beautiful new temporary exhibitions for our visitors this summer! Voices of the Nisga’a Treaty and Harvesting Nisga’a: The Survival and Rich Cultural Identity of Nisga’a Fishing. Please see the Transformation Continues tab for more information concerning these exhibitions.
