HAIDA RAID 3

Haida Raid 3: Save Our Waters in response to the Dec. 2013 decision by the Joint Review Panel to recommend approval of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline with 209 conditions, despite overwhelming opposition from the people who spoke at the hearings. Haida Raid 3 sends a message that people on the coast are united against pipelines and oil tankers.

Watch Raven Hair and Moss Head as they confront the Prime Minister in this new anti-pipeline and anti-tanker. Featuring the hit song "Who Will Save Our Waters?" by Kinnie Starr with a cameo by Haida Gwaii's very own Ja$e El Nino.

Haidawood is a unique inter-cultural collaboration that brings together Haida and non-Haida people to make stop motion animations that reflect the culture, language, and spirit of Haida Gwaii. This project is a collaboration between the Indo-Scottish Canadian artist, neuroscientist, and educator Dr. Ken Leslie, and K’alts’idaa K’ah (Laughing Crow) Productions, a storytelling society founded by the Haida carvers Jaalen and Gwaai Edenshaw. Haidawood makes stop motion animations featuring Xaad Kil (the Haida language) and is designed to help people share and enjoy Haida culture.
