Klemtu is a village on Swindle Island in the coastal fjords of British Columbia, Canada. Klemtu is the home of the Kitasoo tribe of Tsimshians, originally from Kitasu Bay, and the Xai'xais of Kynoch Inlet, a subgroup of the Heiltsuk people. Local legend has it that Sasquatch (the legendary "Bigfoot") have been spotted on the island, but these days Klemtu is better known for it's slightly less ethereal wildlife. Klemtu is located inside the Great Bear Rainforest, a large expanse of coastal temperate rain forest, known for it's abudant wildlife. Dedicated nature lovers could see grey wolves, grizzly bears, humpback whales, orca, deer, cougars, mountain goats, salmon, sea lions, sea otters, and the rare, cream-colored Kermode bear, or sprit bear.
