That which makes us Haida
The Haida Language documents the last remaining fluent speakers of the Haida language and explores the three remaining dialects found in Alaska, Old Massett and Skidegate through portraits taken by Vancouver-based Farah Nosh over the last eight years and interviews with the last fluent speakers in these communities.
A full-colour exhibition catalogue with photos by Farah Nosh, with a foreward by renowned anthropologist Wade Davis, and a CD accompanies the exhibition (Haida Gwaii Museum Press).
The exhibition will run from March 29 through September 9, 2012 at the Bill Reid Gallery in Vancouver.
