Haida Gwaii Field School

The coastal rainforest island archipelago of Haida Gwaii is the ancestral home of the Haida people, and the inspiration of the rich and beautiful Haida culture.

Students will learn from Elders, and other knowledgeable Haida people, about the ancient history, culture, language, lifeways, connections to the land, and the impacts of colonialism. Students will meet Elders and leadership working with fluent speakers committed to restoring and revitalizing the Haida language, and efforts of reconciliation and relationships that build cultural understanding. This Field School is unique and a special opportunity for students.
