At first all the people, we call Xaadas, or Haida’s, lived on Gwaay Iiwaans. At that time there were four great islands. To the west of Haida Gwaii - Gwaay Iiwaans - was a large island with a burning mountain, it moved away. Another lay to the east, between Gwaay Iiwaans and the mainland, but, it sunk under the ocean and, it is said, someday it will return. To the north, across an arm of the salt water lay another great island that broke off from the mainland.
