The Kitasoo First Nation

The Kitasoo are one of the 14 tribes of the Tsimshian people in Canada, who inhabit, along with Xai’xais people of Heiltsuk ethnic affiliation, the village of Klemtu, British Columbia. The name Kitasoo derives from the Tsimshian name Gidestsu, from git- (people of) and disdzuu, which refers to a large, tiered house-depression. The Kitasoo, along with the Gitga’ata Tsimshians at Hartley Bay, B.C., are often classed as “Southern Tsimshian,” their traditional language being the southern dialect of the Tsimshian language. Their band government is the Kitasoo/Xaixais First Nation, a member government of the Oweekeno-Kitasoo-Nuxalk Tribal Council.
