Anthony Island

Anthony Island (Haida: SG?ang Gwaay) is an island located in the southernmost Queen Charlotte Islands of the North Coast of British Columbia, Canada, to the west of Kunghit Island, the archipelago’s southernmost. Anthony Island is noted for being the location of the ruins of SkungWai or SG?ang Gwaay Llnaagay, commonly called Ninstints after the reigning mid-19th Century chief there. SG?ang Gwaay Llnagaay was a major village of the Kunghit Haida people.

Anthony Island is part of the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Its Haida name, SG?ang Gwaay, refers to the wailing sound made when winds push through a hole in the rocks at a certain tide level.
