Returning to Beaver Bay, we pay a visit to the wonderful Kaay Centre, a Haida cultural centre and museum just outside Skidegate. It is built on an old village site, the architecture inspired by the layout of a traditional Haida village. Large cedar houses face the water across a strip of open land; tall totem poles dominate the house fronts. These were some of the first poles raised in Skidegate since the great die-off (in the late 1800's, when smallpox and TB decimated the Haida people).
