The Saviour Mountains

The ancestors tell of a Great Flood that covered the Earth. To prevent being swept away, The Nisg̱a’a saved themselves in rafts and canoes, tying their vessels to the four highest peaks in Nisg̱a’a territory, including Sganisim Xlaawit (Vetter Peak, 2058 metres). Some say that it’s still possible to see ropes embedded in the rock of theses peaks where Nisg̱a’a tied their canoes. These peaks are known as the Saviour Mountains.
