On the Trail of Property WomanUnknown - 2003 ; 2007
In the 1960s, Freda Diesing was among the vanguard of Haida artists whose talents sparked a revival of her culture's artwork. At the age of 42, she took up carving and established herself as not only an exceptional carver, but also an enthusiastic teacher and mentor. Some of today's emerging masters like Dempsey Bob and Stan Bevan thank Freda for their success. In recognition of her achievement, she received a National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 2002. She was killed on Dec.3, 2002 in an automobile accident. Much of the program is narrated by Diesing.
