    Book details


Kathleen Jones travelled to the islands of Haida Gwaii, off the northernmost coastline of British Columbia, to talk to a nation who have lived in harmony with their environment for more than ten thousand years. Their guiding principle ‘:Yah’:Guudang’:, is about “:respect and responsibility, about knowing our place in the web of life and how the fate of our culture runs parallel with the fate of the ocean, sky and forest”:. The Haida Nation are at the forefront of environmental opposition to the commercial exploitation of the planet and they have a blueprint - the Haida Land Use Vision - for our survival. But there is a darker side to Haida history. Kathleen Jones uncovers the story of how the British Colonial administration reduced the population from more than twenty thousand to just over five hundred by a policy that has been identified as ‘:cultural genocide’:. Haida artist Bill Reid, whose sculpture ‘:Raven and the First Men’: appears on the cover, wrote that, “:It is one of the world’:s finest tributes to the strength of the human spirit that most of those who lived, and their children after them, remained sane and adapted”:.
