Best Places to See in BC - Gitwangak Battle Hill

Gitwangak Battle Hill 
National Historic Site of Canada
(formerly known as Kitwanga Fort)
is located in northwestern 
British Columbia along highway
37 - the Stewart-Cassier highway.

Built in the 1700's by the
Gitwangak First Nations people 
the hill was used as a fortified
location for homes and
a site to launch raids against 
the Nass River and coastal peoples.
The indigenous trading routes of British Columiba
included the Grease Trails, named after
the small fish called eulachon
which run in the Nass and Skeena Rivers.
The fish were boiled to extract their oil and
were traded with other Native groups
that did not have spawning rivers in their
