Sharing Our World: Animals of the Native Northwest Coast
"We, as the Haida, have a spiritual connection with our natural surroundings and all that dwell in it. Our beliefs, based on our ancient traditions, guide us to live in balance with the wildlife that we share this land with." - T.J. Sqwaayaans Young, Kaigani, Haida
