Haisla Agreement

In the same month, province bc announced a performance agreement that provides for the agreement to ensure that LNG facility management, monitoring and compliance activities are carried out and enforced by provincial officials, and gives the provincial government the authority to manage and enforce federal rules. It also allows KLNG supporters to act predictably with clear regulatory oversight. „HaiSea Marine is majority owned by Haisla,“ says Crystal Smith, Chief Councillor of Haisla Nation. „Our agreement with Seaspan ensures that our members have access to employment, training and purchasing opportunities in the LNG Canada contract. The opportunity to work in the field in the maritime industry is very important for Haisla.

The other facility manages the logistics of business development and roll-out, which is done at the regional and local level. In 2006, the Na Na Kila Institute helped bring a Haisla Totem pole back to Canada.

It was the first stake ever brought back from overseas. (See also the repatriation of artifacts.) The mast was restored by the Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm, Vancouver, to the UBC Museum of Anthropology. In 1876, Chief G`psgolox built the totem pole to pay tribute to the kitlope that died during the smallpox epidemic. In 1929, the traditional G`psgolox corpse mast was removed from a Haisla village in Mis`kusa and disappeared for more than sixty years. however, his memory has been preserved in Haisla`s oral traditions. In 1991, the mast was discovered in Sweden and, after years of negotiations and 77 years in a foreign museum, the mast was brought back to Kitamaat, British Columbia, on July 1, 2006. A second pole was erected at Misk`USA, where the original mast was located. As part of the return agreement, the Haisla carved an after-apple tree for the Swedish museum.

The Haisla Nation agreed, and its contribution to the partnership was the purchase of simple land charges for the project on the west bank of the Douglas Range. The Haisla Nation has already reached an existing agreement with the owners who give the first rights to purchase the land. As co-owners of the project, the Haisla will participate in all future project revenues, their only financial risk being the value of the property. After two years of negotiations, Haisla signed an impact benefits agreement with initial supporters, which provided an option for the acquisition of 35 percent of construction capital in the project. When the original group sold the project to Houston, Texas-based Apache Corporation, Haisla sold its option to the company for $50 million. Today, KLNG is owned by Apache Canada Ltd.
