For three years, “Indian Heritage Dollars” were issued in three series by the North West Indian Cultural Society in British Columbia for use throughout the province. British Columbia has maintained a greater population of indigenous First Nations people compared to other provinces because of its relatively late colonization and mountainous terrain, and has continually been at the forefront of Canadian native rights struggles. These dollars aimed to highlight the diverse cultures and histories of British Columbia’s many different First Nations tribes.

The Haida people are well-known for their totem poles and traditional motifs and Haida art is world-famous. Recent legislation has seen the name of their homeland, the former Queen Charlotte Islands, officially changed to Haida Gwaii, their chosen name for the region.
