Came to tell something (Gina suuda tl’l xasii)
Came to tell something (Gina suuda tl’l xasii) includes historical Haida art dating as far back as the early 1800s as well as traditional art by 35 contemporary artists. Art fills different functions in Haida society – whether recording histories and family lineages or expressing connections with the land and the supernatural. The show is curated by Nika Collison under the guidance of Haida artists and scholars Evelyn Vanderhoop, Isabel Rorick, Robert Davidson, James Hart and Guujaaw.
To Dec. 31, 2014 at the Haida Gwaii Museum.
