Hartley Bay is a First Nations community on the coast of British Columbia. The village is located at the mouth of Douglas Channel, about 630 kilometres north of Vancouver and 145 kilometres south of Prince Rupert. It is an isolated village accessible only by air and water with a population of 200.

Haida Gwaii is a remote, beautiful, and wild chain of islands off the northern coast of British Columbia. The remoteness is part of its appeal: sprawling beaches, forests dense with growth and shaded by giant trees, and an abundance of wildlife, surrounded on all sides by the Pacific ocean. The Haida people call these islands home, and their history and culture is entangled in its incredible natural bounty and beauty.

In this Community Field Experience, come discover and explore…

  • your own inquiry within a rich Indigenous setting
  • a beautiful, unique Canadian landscape
  • community culture
  • land-based meaningful experiences
  • public and band schools
  • Where’s the Art? Where’s the Math?
