What to See and Do
The annual Kasaan Community Harvest is a weekend event that brings community members and guests together to prepare food, learn safe processing techniques and exchange family recipes of the Haida community. Participants smoke and process salmon, make jam, jar venison, produce devils club salve from harvested bark and turn elderberries into jelly. Join the community harvesting to help pass on and continue Haida traditions that have lasted for thousands of years.
Don’t forget to take a guided tour of Kasaan Totem Park and the Totems Historic District. The outdoor park is located alongside pristine beaches and features original house posts of the Haida people, including a house built in the late 1800s. One of the wealthiest Haida chiefs, Chief Son-i-hat, built the Whale House, a traditional log house that used to provide shelter to over 30 people.
