Land, Sea and Sky
Gwaii Haanas

“We do not inherit this land from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
(Haida saying)

“Haida Gwaii, the Islands of the People sits equidistant from Luxor, Machu Picchu, and Timbuktu. On the map, where every islet and scrap of land inhabited sits in the shadow of somebody’s national flag and is named for after a monarch or politician, Haida Gwaii are shown as the westernmost extremity of Canada.” Robert Bringhurst

Haida Gwaii is an archipelago located 130 kilometers off the northern British Columbia coast. For the Haidi people, marine and land environments are inseparable. The artificial boundaries between earth and ocean exists only on a map. The Haida culture is intertwined with all of creation in land, sea, air and spirit worlds.

This year my SPARK exhibit focuses on the beauty of the Haidi Gwaii archipelago. On the eve of Canad’a 150th birthday, join me at Peterborough’s Frameland Frame it 4U to celebrate the cultural diversity of this great land.
