The Haida Culture
From totem poles to red cedar bark, seafaring vessels and song -- the Haida culture stems as far back as the pre-glacial forests we work so hard to protect. Our world-famous sculptors, carvers and painters proudly depict our deep connection to the rich lands and waters of Haida Gwaii.
The Haida People
In the past, the Haida were known as “Vikings of the Northwest Coast” because of our excellent seamanship, superior craft, and lightning raids. Today, we are still a strong and deeply connected people who are fiercely proud of our beautiful home, and we welcome visitors to share our unique way of seeing the world through our hospitality, art, tours and culinary experiences.
