Kitselas First Nations – Terrace, BC

Kitselas is a progressive Nation. We are proud of our heritage and our achievements, both historic and contemporary. With a population of approximately 700 people, Kitselas traditional territory is located in Northwest British Columbia. Our reserves and territory surround the City of Terrace and the Skeena River. About half of our people live on the Kitselas reserve of Gitaus, a 15-minute drive east of Terrace. Others in the area live in Kulspai, a smaller reserve west of Terrace. The rest of our population is spread among Vancouver, Prince George, Prince Rupert and other places.
