Wed, 09/02/2015 - 5:23am

Also known as the Whale House or, more specifically Chief Son-i-hat's House, this building is the oldest surviving example of traditional Haida architecture in the United States. Originally built by Chief Son-i-hat in the 1880s, Náay I'waans was once home to the wealthy and revered chief and his family. Today, the site attracts ogling tourists from all over the world. As carver Eric Hamar puts it, the site also serves as the "historical and emotional center of Kasaan."
