A showplace of indigenous culture, Hazelton originally was called Git-an-maks, meaning “where people fish by torchlight.” European settlers arriving in 1872 renamed the area Hazelton, after the profusion of hazelnut trees covering the fertile farmland.
Considered holy by the Gitxsan First Nation, the forest land within a 64.4-kilometre (40-mi.) radius of Hazelton has the province's greatest concentration of standing totem poles, many portrayed in paintings by British Columbia artist Emily Carr.
