Hartley Bay

HARTLEY BAY, pop 162 (2001), is a coastal FISHING community at the mouth of DOUGLAS CHANNEL, 125 km south of PRINCE RUPERT. It was occupied originally by the Gitga'ata, a southern TSIMSHIAN nation. They moved north to William DUNCAN's settlement at METLAKATLA in the 1860s and 1870s, but many returned to their traditional territory in 1887 and founded a new community, Hartley Bay, not far from their original village site. It is an isolated waterfront village linked by elevated wooden roads.
