The Transformation Continues

We are pleased to annouce two new exhibitions this summer: Along The River Bend: Celebrating 25 Years of the Nisga'a Fisheries Mangement Program and Adventures with Lithics, Plumb Bobs and Trowels Abound: An Archaeological Exploration of the Nass Valley. Both exhibitions will run until the fall and feature curated in-house content and a never before seen collection of ancient materials excavated right here in Laxgalts'ap! We will also be featuring outside activites (such as a Fish-Wheel and a 'mock' archaeological excavation) and daily programming/tours throughout the summer. We hope you can join us! 

The Nisga'a Museum is working on researching the history of each item in the Ancestors’ Collection and continually enhancing our beautiful permanent collection. Through exhibit information panels, an audio guide, museum books, audio/visual presentation, and searchable database, these rich and interwoven tales will take visitors deep into traditional Nisga’a life and culture. This state-of-the-art facility will eventually include archival software systems, a library and teaching centre, ongoing cultural programming, and a gift shop showcasing Nisga’a art and artists. Special exhibits will open on an ongoing basis.

Future exhibits will take visitors from the Ancestors’ Collection to more recent struggles for Nisga’a land, to the modern, self-governing Nisga’a Nation. These exhibits will celebrate both human and natural history through our enduring bonds to the land, river, and sea.

Hli Goothl Wilp-Adokshl Nisga’a will be renowned as a centre for research, learning, and cultural tourism in northwest British Columbia — a permanent home for the preservation and celebration of all that is Nisga’a.
