A new book examining the traditions and culture of the Gitxaala people is launching this week.
The book, titled People of the Saltwater, is by UBC anthropology Professor Charles Menzies, who is also a member of the Kitkatla First Nation.
Professor Menzies says the book is both a personal and academic journey.
Professor Menzies says while the book is an ethnography, it’s written as a story that’s accessible for a general audience.
The book will be officially launched in Kitkatla this Wednesday.
On Thursday there’ll be a reading and presentation at the Museum of Northern B.C. in Prince Rupert at 7pm.
