A presentation on Indigenous oral traditions and the ancient feminine, through art and music.

Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson will present her new book “Out of Concealment: Female Supernatural Beings of Haida Gwaii”.  The publication re-imagines the ancient feminine Supernatural Beings of Haida Gwaii, epic figures in the Haida Nation's origin stories, which have been passed down for millennia.

Transforming her image into SGuuluu Jaad, Foam Woman; Ts'uu K'waayga, Cedar sister; Xuuajii Jaad, Grizzly Bear Woman; and many others, Williams-Davidson pays homage to these powerful Beings and brings their spirit into the light for new generations and audiences to enjoy and learn from.

Exhibit Opening: Out of Concealment - Female Supernatural Beings of Haida Gwaii

Haida artist and lawyer Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson presents an exhibition, book and album—all supernatural in their own right—of female supernatural beings and crest images of Haida oral traditions. The audience is sure to delight in this critical, original and wondrous iteration of ancient histories and wisdoms passed down through the generations. Through combining the beauty of Haida Gwaii, the art of Robert Davidson, and supernatural beings adorned by Indigenous designers—the feminine and powerful land and seascapes of Haida Gwaii are brought out of concealment, humanizing the land and sea, and showing they are worthy of respect, rather than domination and exploitation.
