We recently toured Haida Gwaii and drove through Skidegate. This is a quaint native village with a lot of history. Take the beach drive through Skidegate and take the time to watch the beautiful eagles in the trees at shores edge. Low tides will have more eagles looking for food on the beach.

When flying Air Canada to Haida Gwaii from Vancouver you land at Sandspit which is on Moresby Island. Haida Gwaii is basically two main islands Moresby and Graham and untold other islands, inlets and absolute pristine rugged country. The islands were previously known as the Queen Charlotte Islands. The township and port of Queen Charlotte are on Graham Island which is reached by taking a 20 minute car ferry ride from Moresby to Skidegate Landing on Graham Island. For widerness lovers Haida Gwaii is a must see. The First Nations culture is well engrained with many settle ments celebrating the old ways whilst having a keen eye on the future durection of its people. Winter is relatively mild but expect snow and very quiet. Summer sees an influx of adventure tourists particularly to Moresby where most tourism facilities are based.

Locals can help you learn what is open on the day you are in town otherwise you could miss things! Not a lot shops but far better than Queen Charlotte City. Make sure you leave time to explore.

I admit to being a little conflicted seeing “Skidegate” listed as an attraction here as if it were some community locked in time, i.e.: Barkerville – a literal museum town. I mean, other communities on Haida Gwaii aren’t listed as “attractions” like Old Massett or Sandspit. Similarly, if you visit mainland BC or Alberta -- basically anywhere else in Canada – you don’t see “Vancouver” or “Edmonton” or “Toronto” listed as attractions in and of themselves. So, I don’t know. I’m sure there’s no conscious malice behind listing a community as an “attraction” there for your amusement and wonder, but it just strikes me as kind of odd. . .?

That said, Skidegate is a marvelous little community of about 800 residents steeped in a rich and diverse history. It is one of two major Haida communities left on Haida Gwaii (the other being Old Massett), following the smallpox epidemic of the late 1800s. When strolling through this community, you begin to immerse yourself in its history – its ancient and colonial past – almost immediately. Now, it is certainly beyond the scope of a relatively short “review” such this to talk about a community’s history going back thousands of years, but here are some highlights for those with a curious mind:

The Longhouse Gift Shop: As soon as you enter the community coming in from Queen Charlotte/BC Ferries, you’ll see a cute longhouse-style gift shop. You can see where it gets its name! Inside, you will find a wonderful selection of local Haida artwork, handcrafts, carvings (gold, silver, copper, black argillite), weaving and souvenir-inspired clothing featuring Haida designs. The helpful staff are always on hand to answer any questions you might have or to make helpful suggestions. When I visited, I left with a couple of nifty shirts for family members. Aside from the tourist aspect, what I grew to appreciate when talking with the owner, Rose, is the fact that this little shop tends to go above and beyond in supporting local artists, providing them a larger platform then they might otherwise have. As well, the prices here are a lot more reasonable than at the Haida Heritage Centre!

Dave’s in the Village: I’ve already written about this little eatery elsewhere on this site, so it’s simply enough to say that if you’re in the mood for an outdoor lunch (limited seating), this is the place to go; in fact, outside of the local gas station and Co-op along the highway, it is the only place to go for a cooked meal. But if you’re expecting “traditional” foods, you’ll be out of luck because Dave’s offers your standard fare: burgers, fries, chicken strips and pizza. It can be a little inconsistent, but it’s not bad.

Skidegate Totem Pole: Along Front Street is the Skidegate pole, raised just this past year. The pole is a beautiful cultural statement that speaks to the history of a people and their resilience. Definitely one of the “must see” sights in town.

Skidegate Community Hall: Walk maybe less than five minutes down the road from the Skidegate pole and you’ll come across the community hall. I’ve learned that this building carries with it quite the history, having been in existence, now, for close to a century. The exterior has changed somewhat from the earliest photographs I’ve seen dating back to the late 1930s (you can see them on the Royal BC Museum website or the online catalogue at the Haida Gwaii Museum), but the interior has remained almost unchanged: beautifully crafted, the architecture is reminiscent of days long gone by. The wide open spaces make for a fine dance hall or place of celebration. Many a potlatch has been held here. And if you find yourself lucky enough to be in town during Skidegate Days, which runs during the weekend of July 16-18, you can partake in a delightful BBQ salmon feast. You get a sense that the community hall is much more than a building: it has witnessed some powerful moments of a people. If it’s walls could tell stories. . .

Skidegate Youth Centre: Opened about 5 years ago, the youth centre is a marvelous structure with beautiful oceanfront view. It is designed in a modern longhouse-style to evoke past images of “ancient” Skidegate – with its many longhouses and totem poles that used to line the shores.

Old Fire Truck: About five minutes down the road (and keeping along Front Street), you will come across the remains of an old fire engine. It has certainly seen better days, but there is still something beautiful about the shell that remains. The plant life that is sprouting up from the engine gives it something of a unique quality.

Skidegate Haida Immersion Program: The longhouse building that can easily be seen from the decks of the ferry when arriving to Haida Gwaii is now home to the Haida language program where elders work with the community’s youth to preserve, protect and advance the indigenous language as well as complete important legal work. If you’ve been to Haida Gwaii/Skidegate before, you might notice that a totem pole that was once standing in front of this longhouse structure is no longer there. It was apparently taken down for safety reasons a couple of years back. This pole was/is known as the “Bill Reid pole,” having been carved by the internationally renowned Haida artist back in the late 1970s. It was raised in the community in 1978 and served almost as a flagship for the town. While this pole is no longer standing, it can still be viewed at the Haida Heritage Centre.

Skidegate Cemetery: Cross the bridge along front street and you’ll witness the town cemetery. No visitors are permitted outside of local residents, but you can still nonetheless view a couple of memorial totems at a distance. Respecting protocol, one should never enter this sacred space and take pictures.

Chief’s Pole: If you continue walking along Front Street past the cemetery, you will eventually round a corner and witness the Chief’s pole, which was raised in 2011 – the first “chiefs pole” to be raised in about 100 years, I’m told. It is an absolutely marvelous sight at 40 feet tall. The design features a “sea bear” holding a killer whale on the bottom, raven, dogfish and an eagle at the apex. The pole articulates a complex and rich history of a people.

Those are some of the key sights in the community. There are others, of course. In brief:

School House: On third avenue (adjacent to the highway) you will see the old school house. Once upon a time, this space functioned as the “Indian Day School.” Now, it operates as the community’s nursery school. Like the town community hall, the school house is very much a site of history, having been in existence for the better part of a century.

Balance Rock: Located maybe a five-minute walk outside of Skidegate (heading towards Port Clements), you will find this interesting erratic. One cannot help but feel the wonder of this place as symbolized by the “balancing rock.” Be sure you witness this wonder at low tide, otherwise you won’t see much!

Spirit Lake Trail: Located behind the community, this trail offers easy hiking and an excellent introduction to the ecology of Haida Gwaii.

Skidegate Days: Held during the weekend of July 16-18, these festivities are a must do if you’re in the area. Here, you get to enjoy games; witness canoe races; dine on delectable local cuisine; partake in a “totem-to-totem” marathon; and just bear witness to outstanding Haida hospitality.

While I still find it strange that a community – an active community – is listed as an “attraction,” there is little doubt that there is much to do and see here. You can take your time, relax, walk the beaches, interact with the locals and just take it all in. And believe me, there is a lot to take in – thousands of years worth.

This is a village immersed in history, tragic at times. It is one of the two main villages of the Haida Nation, where survivors of the 19th century smallpox epidemics congregated. Today, it has a number of poles, shops and other attractions, but it is primarily a residential area, and visitors should respect this.

Interesting place with lots of heritage. Numerous totems even in front of homes. Cemetery area interesting from a distance but no photos and off limits to all but the locals. Very friendly community.

Skidegate located in Haida Gwaii (formerly Queen Charlotte Islands) is a small town of 800 Haida and Canadian people that is the focal point of Haida activity on the island. It is worth a walk around and a visit to its neighborhoods, museum of Haida culture and port. There are limited restaurants and facilities, but hose that are there are quite good. We enjoyed the town and its residents and attractions. A very friendly and interesting small town.

We were fortunate to get to visit Skidegate during Skidegate Days (their fair running from July 16-18). We got to enjoy bannock and smoked salmon, see Haida boat races (done by both locals and tourists), fish splitting competitions, log cutting demonstrations, a marathon, as well as numerous other things. Their hall is gorgeous and we got to enjoy the smoked salmon supper in there as well as the evening dance. The town sits right on the coastline, so you have beautiful views of the water, islands, bald eagles and ravens. There are not many amenities in Skidegate, so if you need gas, groceries, or a restaurant, you may want to go to another town.

While strolling down the street next to the waterfront, we had a woman pull up along side and ask if we were too hot and needed a ride. We told her we were 'just strolling' so she pointed out a number of places to see (totems, galleries, eagle nest) and not to miss Skidegate days if we were in town on the weekend. We had planned to do the 10k totem to totem run but ended up doing the 'walk to breakfast' event instead and met more locals who also showed us more places of interest. Nothing happens quickly here, but if you take the time to chat with the people, you will likely meet some really nice people.

Skidegate is a waterfront Haida community that can best be enjoyed by parking the car and taking a nice, leisurely walk. You will pass by some Haida artist’s studios, the cemetery with its beautiful totems (unfortunately, no admittance allowed) and a mix of residences. This small community is located a few kilometres from the ferry terminal (offering service to Prince Rupert and Sandspit) and a stone’s throw from the Cultural Centre. Other attractions close to Skidegate are Spirit Lake Trail, All About U Arts and Jags for coffee or lunch. There is a limited selection of places to eat in Skidegate.
