Haisla

Haisla
First Nations

The Haisla are a First Nations people living at Kitamaat in British Columbia. Their indigenous Haisla language is named after them.

Haisla is a North Wakashan (Kwakiutlan) language spoken by several hundred people. Haisla is geographically the northernmost Wakashan language. Its nearest Wakashan neighbor is Oowekyala. Haisla is related to the other North Wakashan languages, Oowekyala, Heiltsuk, and Kwakiutl.

The name Haisla is derived from the Haisla word meaning “[those] living at the rivermouth, living downriver”.

The Haisla language consists of two dialects (or sublanguages): Kitamaat and Kitlope.
