BCPM Protecting the Heritage of Ninstints The first steps to protect the heritage of Ninstints began when Charles Newcombe made a thorough photographic inventory of the village between 1897 and 1913. His sketch maps and notes of identification of monuments and houses amplify the rich record that forms the baseline for studies of this village. Newcombe was unable to collect actual monuments from the village because of its remoteness, but he did collect many of the items that had been brought from the village by the last inhabitants.

However I was too well guarded against supprize, for them to have been victorious. There is no doubt that the Kunghit Haida, especially under the direction of Koyah, were a warlike people—in some ways this was a necessary quality to ensure their survival in their rugged environment. However, this attribute should not be overstressed. The words of trader William Sturgis, contradicting the opinion of an early historian, provide a more balanced view (Howay 1925: 309): He ascribes it (Indian violence towards traders) to the treachery and ferocity of the Indians; I, with better opportunities for investigating and ascertaining the truth, find the cause in the lawless and brutal violence of white men; and it would be easy to show that these fatal disasters might have been averted by a different treatment of the natives and by prudence and proper precaution on the part of their civilized visitors.
