Kispiox is situated within the Gitksan Territory fifteen kilometres on the Kispiox Valley Road north of Hazelton at the junction of the Kispiox and Skeena Rivers. The size of our community is 1650 acres.

Anspayaxw translates to “People of the Hiding Place”, the community of Kispiox is one of six ancient Gitksan communities which exist today in the area. Kispiox is estimated to be about 3,000 years old, having existed, like several other villages, since the time the population was dispersed from the ancient city of Txemlax’amid by a disaster. Archaeological and oral history evidence indicate that the Gitksan occupied the valley of the Ksan or Skeena River following the last ice age about 10,000 years ago. Villages have been found and abandoned throughout Gitksan history. The last two villages to relocate were Kuldo’o and Gisga’g’as; they moved to Kispiox and Gitanmaax. Today there are 7 First Nation communities within Gitksan territory.

Kispiox has a total membership of 1,555 members as of May 2011 – 607 reside on reserve and 948 members reside off reserve.
