The story of Nanasimgit has long been told amongst the Haida, and Tsimshian of the Northern Northwest Coast. Amongst the Tsimshian, Nanasimgit is known as Gunarhnesemgyet or Gunar. The story tells of a woman being taken by the Killer Whales and made to marry. Nanasimgit ventures to the home of the Killer Whales to retrieve his wife and bring her home (Barbeau 1953: 269-286).
