Chief Skidegate Speech booklet

20.00

This artisanal publication (4 pages long 5.25 x 7.25 inches in size), is beautifully typeset and designed, with a cover fitting for a Hereditary Chief of the Northwest Coast: red with copper embossing.

The intent of Raven Calling Productions is to ensure that this seminal speech is honoured. Although the address is short (142 words) it is a powerful expression of the ancient Haida law of “gina waadluxan gud ad kwaagid”—everything depends on everything else, or interconnectedness—in a contemporary context. His application of this law set the course for the journey of reconciliation of the Haida Nation—three decades before “reconciliation” became part of the legal and political discourse in Canada.

Photos featured in the publication are of Lewis Collinson sculpting argillite (courtesy of the Haida Gwaii Museum) and a stand of cedar trees in Haida Gwaii (Jack Litrell). Inside the page folds are close-ups of cedar bark (Ruth Hartnup).
