Premier Listings for Khutzeymateen Inlet Conservancy

The Khutzeymateen Inlet Conservancy is located adjacent to Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, which protects important grizzly bear habitat. Khutzeymateen Inlet contains a number of locally important salmon bearing streams, key intertidal areas, and areas of First Nations traditional use. The Khutzeymateen is historically associated with the Gitsi’is Tribe and associated with Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla First Nations, collectively known as the Coast Tsimshian.

A 362-hectare portion within the Khutzeymateen Inlet is a Schedule F conservancy (Khutzeymateen Inlet West), which allows for necessary resource access to adjacent timber harvesting lands while providing additional protection to the Khutzeymateen Inlet Conservancy and to the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary.

The Khutzeymateen Inlet Conservancy is comprised of 10,554 hectares of upland and 2,755 hectares of foreshore for a total of 13,309 hectares. Other nearby protected areas include Ksi X’anmas Conservancy, immediately north of Khutzeymateen Inlet, and Ksi Xts’at’kw/Stagoo Conservancy along the Observatory Inlet to the north.

Coast Tsimshian have documented fishing for uuk and yee; hunting for t’u’utskgm’ol, mati, and waaky; trapping for lusyen, watsa, yeni and sts’ool; gardening for potatoes; wild food gathering for musoo, sti’moon, laawwmmuliit, weeluum bowel, skamoolks, cranberries, and maayhagwiluu; and gathering other wild plants including hat’al, haalmmoot, ksiw, and galaaq hat’al. Other plants were used for medicinal purposes; these include sahwdak, medijica aams, and txa’oogasteti.

The Khutzeymateen group of protected areas is located approximately 45 kilometres northwest of Prince Rupert and 10 kilometres north of Lax Kw’alaams in the Coast Ranges. Access to the Khutzeymateen Protected Areas is primarily by boat. Floatplane access and helicopter access to Khutzeymateen Park is tightly controlled.
