OUR LOGO & MEANING

The ge l"wa, which means 'canoe', is an historical symbol for the Haisla people. In earlier times the canoe was used for transportation during hunting, fishing and visiting.

The mountains across from the Kitamaat Village had the outline of a ge l"wa bottom that was used as a marker. When the sun was setting on the ge l"wa the Haisla knew that the oolican were coming.

The geejwah (sun) is now the symbol of light of knowledge.
