Kasaan | Prince of Wales Island

The Organized Village of Kasaan is a federally recognized Tribe committed to promoting, preserving, and protecting indigenous Haida identity and values. For our elders and youth, we look to the future in unity, by developing economic opportunities, promoting education, and utilizing our cultural, natural, and social resources.

Kasaan is the northernmost of the Haida villages. At the end of the 1800s, residents moved from the former village, Gasa’aan (“pretty town”), on Skowl Arm, now called Old Kasaan.Kasaan is located on Prince of Wales Island. The town is easily accessible by road once on Prince of Wales Island.

“New” Kasaan is located on Prince of Wales Island and is easily accessible by road and floatplane.
