At Gitwangak Battle Hill National Historic Site (formerly Kitwanga Fort), scan wide-open views of the scenic Kitwanga River valley and a high grassy knoll, once the site of a fortified village where the Gitwangak people defended their domain in the mid-1700s to 1800s. Hear the whisper of First Nations legends in the air around you as you stand beneath a line of majestic age-old totem poles at nearby Gitwangak Village.
