9781550593884: Haida Eagle Treasures: Tsath Lanas History and Narrative

Take a journey into the heart of Haida culture as it is lived and experienced by a single, extraordinary woman. Pansy Collison, a Haida woman born in Old Masset on Haida Gwaii, delivers a rich collection of stories that blend past and present. Drawn from the Elders’ deep well of knowledge and her own experience, Pansy interweaves an oral history of the Haida people with her personal narrative and contemporary issues faced by her community. Each story and recollection is a treasure that captures the beauty of the Haida way of life.

As both a Haida woman and a teacher in mainstream society, Pansy also describes the challenges and contradictions of living between two different worlds. One of the few books written on the Haida people by an actual member of the community, Haida Eagle Treasures captures an authentic voice with an insider’s glimpse into Haida culture. (2012-10-18)
