Kasaan | Prince of Wales Island

Kasaan is one of the main historical Alaskan Native communities of the Haida. Residents moved from their former village on Skowl Arm, now called Old Kasaan, starting in 1893 and mostly in the period 1902-1904. Kasaan is located on Prince of Wales Island. The town is easily accessible by road once on Prince of Wales Island. Kasaan translates as “pretty town”.  Very true!
