Gitanyow, British Columbia From Wikipedia.

Gitanyow is a First Nations reserve community of the Gitxsan people, located on the Kitwanga River 8 km south of Kitwancool Lake, at the confluence of Kitwancool Creek. Gitanyow was formerly named Kitwancool. The band government changed its name from the Kitwancool Indian Band to the Gitanyow Indian Band in 1991. In 1994 the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs, the governing body of the band, renamed themselves Sim-Gi-Get'm Gitanyow and asked that localities on the Kitwancool Indian reserve henceforth be identified as Gitanyow. The village is a National Historic Site of Canada.[1] Coordinates: 55°16′00″N 128°04′00″W See also 'Ksan Kitwanga Fort National Historic Site Notes ^ "Kitwankul National Historic Site of Canada".
