The village of Old Massett is on the northern shore of Graham Island, the largest and most northern island of X̱AAYDAG̱A GWAAY.YAAY B (Queen Charlotte Islands). Old Massett was historically four separate villages

Old Massett is home to X̱aada families who previously lived in a number of different villages in their territory. Each village had its own dialect and there are five different dialects that are currently spoken by residents of Old Massett.
Most fluent speakers of X̱aad Kil are now in their 80s and those who understand or speak the language somewhat are mostly in their 60s. Younger people are now showing a greater interest in the language and there is hope that community members will continue to learn their language.(First Peoples Language Map)
