The Gitmaxmak’ay Nisga’a Society has four active community groups:
the elders group consists of Nisga’a elders living in Prince Rupert and Port Edward over the age of 65. As of 2014, there are approximately 160 registered Nisga’a elders in the region. The elders group gathers once a month on the 2nd Wednesday in the Nisga’a Hall.
Gitmaxmak’ay Youth Council
the youth council is an elected body of Nisga’a youth between the ages of 13-29. The Council has an annual budget for various activities such as a Christmas celebration, feasting camps, socials, ski trips, and more.
the dance group is an active part of the Nisga’a community in Prince Rupert, performing their songs and dances around the region. The group practices weekly at the Nisga’a Hall throughout most of the year.
