The ge I"wa, which means 'canoe', is a historical symbol for the Haisla people. In earlier times the canoe was used for transportation during hunting, fishing, and visiting. The mountains across from the Kitamaat Village had the outline of a ge I"wa bottom that was used as a marker. When the sun was setting on the ge I"wa the Haisla knew that the oolican were coming. The geejwah (sun) is now the symbol of light of knowledge.
Our logo blends these elements together and was created by artist Lyle Wilson.
Our Logo is very important to our brand and therefore it is important that is it used correctly. We have provided a branding package that allows you to see our brand in use and how to correctly use it. Below you will be able to download resources to help you use our brand.
