Ninstints: Haida World Heritage Site

Ninstints: Haida World Heritage Site


Ninstints, located on Anthony Island, one of the smallest and most southerly of the Queen Charlotte chain, contains the vestiges of the great wooden structures and houses of the Kunghit Haida people who abandoned the village in the late 1800s. George MacDonald combines archival material and scientific and photographic evidence to record what is known of the history of Ninstints and its people. Details are given of their houses, of their great chiefs, and finally of their exodus from Ninstints.

Ninstints is a World Heritage Site found on an island off the west coast of Haida Gwaii. The author George F. Mac Donald has put together a very good picture and history of this ancient Haida Village. The book was published by UBC Press.1990.
