Skidegate Inlet

Skidegate Inlet is an inlet on the east coast of the Haida Gwaii archipelago of the North Coast of British Columbia, Canada.[1] It is the easternmost of a series of waterways separating Graham Island to the north from Moresby Island to the south. The community of Skidegate is located on its northern shore, on Graham Island.

Name origin

The name is derived from that of the village, which gets its name from one of the hereditary chiefs there, Chief Skidegate, whose chiefly name means "red paint stone".[2]
