The Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole
A new perspective on the Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole, a 42-foot monumental pole commissioned by a unique cooperative management board made up of equal members of the Haida Nation and the Government of Canada. This video includes GoPro footage taken from the top of the pole. The Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole was raised at Hlk'yah GawGa (Windy Bay) on Lyell Island on August 15, 2013. This was the first pole raised in the Gwaii Haanas region in over 130 years.
