Cinnamon buns and ghost stories in Gwaii Haanas: watchmen provide cultural connections
The moss-covered path in Canada’s remote Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve and Haida Heritage Site seemed deserted until a tall, black-haired Haida man stepped from behind a giant cedar. He was watching me.
If you go:
Haida Style Expeditions offers day trips to several of the Watchman sites
Gracie’s Place offers rooms across the street from where Haida Style Expedition tours start.
If you are doing a multi-day trip stay near Sandspit where many tour operators depart from. Bayview Garden B&B offers hostel rooms as well as B&B rooms.
Visit the Haida Heritage Center at Kay Llnagaay to learn more about Haida history and cultural demonstrations.
