Description From Owner:
  • Kincolith - A Haida expedition had been raiding up Nass River and as it approached the open sea on its homeward journey, some of the prisoners struggled so hard to get free that the Haidas, fearing their canoes would upset,
  • landed at this point and killed all who were resisting. The heads of the victims were left displayed on the bluff here, thus giving rise to the name Kincolith, 'the place of the skulls' (sometimes 'place of scalps').
