Welcome to Nisga'a, Legends of the Nass. The origin of Nisga’a culture is based on encounters with supernatural beings called Naxnok. The Nisga’a believe the existence of the Great Spirit and the Naxnok is a gift to them from the Great Spirit. The Naxnok made known how to live and Nisga’a culture carries it through. The history of the Nisga'a is one of story telling. There are stories about good Naxnok and bad Naxnok. Sacred places of supernatural power called Spanaxnok are found almost in every corner of Nisga’a territory. We hope that you enjoy this site as you see some of the stories that make up our rich culture.
