Battle Hill, also known as the Gitwangak National Historic Site

Gitwangak Battle Hill (formerly known as Kitwanga Fort ) was a fortified village occupied during the late 1700s and early 1800s by the Gitwangak First Nation.

Strategically located on on a small hill above the riverbank, the site afforded excellent vantages up and down the Kitwanga River valley and the adjacent Kitwankul Grease Trail.

A famous occupant of the site was warrior 'Nekt who fought to establish control of the network of lucrative trading trails in the Skeena, Kitimat and Nass region of northern British Columbia.
